A little over a week ago, the Mobile Nations community lost a long-time forum member and moderator known to us as OldSkoolVWLover. His real name was Josh. He passed away on the 7th of December, 2014 at the all too early age of 33.

Those of us that interacted with him via either Crackberry or webOS Nation know that he was patient, helpful, and insightful. The quality of a web-forum, populated by far-flung and semi-anonymous commenters, can reasonably be said to be indicative of the efforts of its moderators. The forums of webOS Nation and Crackberry have been noted for their friendly welcome and expertise. We owe many thanks to Josh’s contributions over the years.

It was his love of PalmOS devices and their webOS successors that brought him to eventually moderate the forums of webOS Nation. After the webOS platform began to rock from the decisions made at HP, Josh moved on to Blackberry devices and across the Mobile Nations to moderate at Crackberry. Both forums have threads paying tribute to him. Feel free to pay your respects at and/or .

Josh leaves behind his lovely wife Sarah and beloved dogs. A few months ago he posted to his :

“Life could be so much worse, if I die tomorrow I hope my family and friends know I got to live it to the fullest!”

Josh’s car will go on display at the on Sunday, Dec 21 as part of a celebration of his life from 2pm-6pm. Anyone may .

Friends are invited to donate on Josh’s behalf to .

pivotCE would like send our deepest condolences to his family. webOS Nation forums user, Remy X, :

“It’s hard to believe when [this type of thing] happens, takes a little while for it to sink in. […] Just like that, a life can be taken away, a reminder […] we should do more to make our time worthwhile, to share kindness, common sense and make good memories, not grudges.

Life is fragile…

@OldSkoolVWLover,

Rest in peace, my friend. We’ll miss you.”

      The first week of June, which presents International Children’s Day (June 1) and World Environment Day (June 5), reminded us of the importance of caring for our world and its children. To properly commemorate these universal holidays and live up to LG’s steadfast commitment to CSR activities that inspire positive change, LG Kazakhstan enlisted the help of 40 children from the Almaty Regional Orphanage to make a difference in their own backyard, and hopefully learn while having heaps of fun in the process.

      The enthusiastic children selected which trees they wanted to plant in the garden, and now fifty apple, plum, apricot, cherry and pear trees are growing there and will eventually provide fresh fruit on their doorstep. Plant specialists were also on site to teach the kids which practices lead to the richest harvest and greenest environment. What’s more, to commemorate International Children’s Day, every hard-working child received a memorable souvenir as a reminder of the amazing work they did that day.

      LG Kazakhstan champions sustainable development and social responsibility through the implementation of environmental practices and charity events that improve the quality of life for locals. Recent initiatives such as LG Blood Donations Day, various CSR educational lectures for students and LG Prima Nota Fest ­­– a nationwide classical music contest for children – demonstrate LG’s tireless efforts towards creating a better life for all.

      A company must fulfill its environmental and social responsibilities to nurture a flourishing ecosystem that benefits all. Introducing technologies that minimize its carbon footprint during manufacturing and implementing inclusive solutions are deeply embedded in LG’s core value, and the company will never falter when it comes to innovating new solutions that help solve the world’s technological and social issues.

      LG Presents the Future of Commercial Technology With
      Digital Signage Solutions and Autonomous Robot Assistant

      SEOUL, June 9, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) will showcase its innovative commercial technologies including Transparent OLED Signage to a diverse lineup of LED signage products and autonomous robot assistants in Las Vegas (USA) at InfoComm 2022 from June 8. LG will spotlight a variety of commercial use-case scenarios in seven distinct zones that demonstrate how LG products support business needs in boardrooms, retail boutiques, drive-throughs, residential home offices, professional creative studios and more.
      Inside the booth, visitors will be treated to thoughtful technology implementations in spaces that explore how nearly all businesses today can leverage digital tools to improve efficiency, productivity and customer experiences.
      Welcoming visitors to LG’s Retail Solutions zone is the LED signage solution using 54-inch bezel-free displays allowing integrators to create a seamless viewing experience. The new 54-inch LG LED Bloc (model LSAC) is approximately four times larger in area than most commonly used LED cabinets, and its unique size allows this model to use it like a 55-inch LCD video wall display with easy installation – it even fits the brackets of existing LCD video wall models.* Also being unveiled in the Retail Solutions zone, is the company’s first multi-purpose customer service robot, LG CLOi GuideBot, which is designed to provide wayfinding, enhanced security and powerful advertising opportunities. LG CLOi GuideBot’s friendly digital face and two large touch screens are designed to revolutionize the customer experience virtually everywhere from museums and convention centers to movie theaters and hotels.
      The Reception zone highlights the creative and engaging possibilities of LG’s Transparent OLED Signage displays, while also demonstrating how 88-inch Ultra Stretch Displays and LG Ultra Slim LED signage can deliver informative and attractive backdrops.
      In the Collaboration and Education Solutions zone, visitors will experience technologies targeted to boardrooms, meeting rooms and training rooms/learning environments. Products shown include LG’s 136-inch LED All-in-One display with onboard system controller and speakers, 55-inch and 43-inch versions of the LG One:Quick Works and One:Quick Flex 4K all-in-one collaboration tool, an 86-inch LG CreateBoard interactive whiteboard, the novel 28-inch LG DualUp Monitor with a unique 16:18 aspect ratio, a 27-inch QHD Ergo Dual desktop monitor, a 15-inch LG gram laptop and a 98-inch large format UHD signage for classrooms.
      The Residential zone is split into two rooms. The Home Cinema area will exhibit LG MAGNIT – the jaw-dropping picture quality created by its several million self-emissive LED pixels lets people enjoy their favorite movies at home. And the Home Office area features a 43-inch One:Quick Flex display, a 14-inch LG gram laptop and two QHD ergonomic desktop monitors that can be independently oriented to form a 32:9 ultrawide display or a 16:18 display, or offer a vertical and horizontal screen simultaneously.
      Creative, film and broadcast professionals may be especially interested in the OLED Pro Creative Studio zone, which demonstrates the exceptional color, clarity and performance of LG’s 32-inch UltraFine OLED Pro desktop monitor that can be supplemented with a monitor hood and a detachable self-calibration sensor. Two 65-inch UltraFine OLED Pro displays, one wall-mounted and the other on a stand, complete the space.
      The Control Room zone demonstrates how LG’s 136-inch LED All-in-One can be leveraged in command centers. Plus, the company’s 55-inch Even Bezel LCD panels will form a variety of video wall displays with virtually no distinguishable separation between panels. A 43-inch IPS UHD desktop monitor will be displayed alongside a 49-inch IPS Dual QHD UltraWide curved monitor, offering a 32:9 aspect ratio.
      Lastly, the Projector zone contains LG’s high-brightness and Ultra Short Throw (UST) 4K UHD CineBeam Laser projectors and the all-new ProBeam business projector showing how the company’s expansive product line offers optimized solutions for virtually every situation and need.
