HP webOS Cloud Services to end January 15, 2015

 

Cloud services support for webOS devices will be ending on January 15, 2015. We appreciate our customer's loyalty the webOS platform. But now, more than three (3) years after the last device was sold, only a small fraction of the devices are still connecting. Therefore, the time has come to shut down the services.

All devices running webOS devices will continue to run after the cloud services are terminated. However, they will no longer be able to:

  • Download new apps or updates. The HP App Catalog will be unavailable after the shutdown
  • Backup or restore devices from the cloud
  • Setup new devices
  • Recover lost passwords

The HP App Catalog will stop supporting new app purchases on November 1, 2014

  • Updates may be posted by developers until November 10, 2014 and users can download any available updates until the services shut down
  • You should make arrangements to backup or transfer your contacts, etc.prior to the service shutdown on January 15, 2015
  • You will no longer be able to backup, restore, reset or initialize a webOS device as of January 15, 2015

There will be additional reminders as the final shutdown approaches. An FAQ can be found at

    • Question: files on USB device shown as ._xxx.jpg

      To have a picture  show on my new LG OLED55B87LC I've connected an external USB 3.0 hard disk (formatted with MS-DOS FAT32 on my iMac) that I've filled with hundreds of pictures from my Fotos App.  But when I open this drive on the TV the jpg pictures (numbered 1.jpg to 999.jpg) show up as ._1.jpg to ._999.jpg. When I scroll down at the end the list then the real jpg`s appear. So it looks like there's a copy of each file on this drive starting with  ._  ?? And all of them can't be shown on the TV - they look faulty ?  I've tried out with another drive / USB stick - just the same problem. Does anyone experience the same problems ? Do USB devices have to be formatted in a special way ? Any idea how to solve this ? 

      Ah - and beside this strange thing - is it normal that it last that long for the system of the TV to create all the thumbnail pictures to show on the TV ? When I scroll through a long list of pictures it lasts always a few seconds until the icons of the pictures really show the contents. This is really annoying because it makes the feature useless if I need several minutes to find a picture I'm searching for. Why is it that slow ? Is the USB connection only with 2.0 Standard ? Or is it a performance problem of WebOS ?

    • IPv6 support please

      It's 2016 now. IPv6 has been around since 1997. Some countries are close to 50% deployment of IPv6. Even my home printer supports IPv6. The Linux kernel, on which webOS is based has been supporting a stable IPv6 implementation since the 2.6 kernel series.   This was certainly my main disappointment when I bought a LG Smart TV.

      Ok, this is not exactly "Future" webOS gadgets but at one point it time it looks like they were. On January 2nd, Dieter Bohn wrote an article for the Verge titled, "The lost secrets of webOS"  that is a very interesting read. Dieter reveils gadgets on the planning board of HP before Leo killed the entire webOS project. In the article he reveils future gadgets code named Twain, Mako, Sapphire, & Embark.
       
      The Twain is an interesting piece of hardware which looked to be ahead of its time a bit as we are seeing tablets like this now.
       

       
       
      Dieter also reveils that the iPad 2 is what scared them all off. It was thinner and lighter than the Touchpad. had they rode it out, who knows what webOs could have been today.
       
       
      If you are a webOS fan, take a moment and read the article: http://www.theverge.com/2014/1/2/5264580/the-lost-secrets-of-webos

      PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 25, 2012 – HP today began executing its plan to deliver an open webOS by committing to a schedule for making the platform’s source code available under an open source license.
      The company aims to complete this milestone in its entirety by September.
      HP also announced it is releasing version 2.0 of webOS’s innovative developer tool, Enyo. Enyo 2.0 enables developers to write a single application that works across mobile devices and desktop web browsers, from the webOS, iOS and Android platforms to the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers – and more. The source code for Enyo is available today, giving the open source community immediate access to the acclaimed application framework for webOS.
      By contributing webOS to the open source community, HP unleashes the creativity of hardware and software developers to build a new generation of applications and devices.
      “HP is bringing the innovation of the webOS platform to the open source community,” said Bill Veghte, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, HP. “This is a decisive step toward meeting our goal of accelerating the platform’s development and ensuring that its benefits will be delivered to the entire ecosystem of web applications.”
      The webOS code will be made available under the Apache License, Version 2.0, beginning with the source code for Enyo.
