TCL is resurrecting the Palm brand with a brand-new Palm, Inc. based in California. As we reported last week,
link hidden, please login to view late last year, although at the time it wasn't clear what the company had planned. It's not at all clear what TCL intends to do with the Palm brand, although they seem to recognize the history that the brand carries. Says TCL:
Palm has always carried a lot of affect and emotions. That's why TCL has set the direction to rebuild the brand involving Palm's very own community, making it the largest scale crowd-sourced project ever seen in the industry.
Where TCL's Alcatel Onetouch has long produced

TCL's full weight will be behind Palm, touting 5000 engineers and 7 research-and-development centers around the world. When we'll see more from TCL and Palm isn't clear, but we do know one thing: Palm is coming back.

It's rare that a company receives a second life as Palm did, and rarer still to be revived after being left for dead. Regardless, the Palm brand carries a lot of emotion for many, so it's good to see it coming back and we hope TCL produces a phone that's worthy of the name Palm.

I have a one year-old model 43UK6500AUA, with standard remote only (no Magic Remote). I can find no mention anywhere of Time Machine. Does this model not include Time Machine II functionality? Must one have a Magic Remote to reveal this feature? I am also baffled by numerous references in the forum to using HDMI , which should not be necessary if using the TV's built-in tuner, as I intend to do. There is also mention of using USB3 for the external HDD. My TV has only two USB ports : USB1 and USB2 — or does this refer to USB 3.0 version (as opposed to USB 2.0)?
This question has probably been asked loads. I am trying to add an App. Nanomid. I cannot see or search it. When I check YouTube for tutorial, the software or Layout is completely different to my TV. 42LA620V-ZA I have tried software update, no joy. It's not just this App, there have been others. Any advice
TVset: SM90107LA (europe/german model) / WebOS: 04.80.02
When scheduling a planned record of a TV broadcast by using the electronic program guide data (EPG), often the last minutes of the broadcast are missing at the records. This is very annoying. Fortunately you can adjust the starting and ending time of a planned (future) record in that manner that you can, for example, extend the ending time by 5 or 10 minutes. This is very helpful.
Unfortunately this option is not available for instant records either from the EPG screen or by direct recording. Here I have only the opportunity to completely change the EPG ending time of the running record to an own time value (e.g. record of 1 h from now). It would be more helpful if running records could also be extended a little bit but without loosing the end time of the record taken over from EPG.
Are there any other solutions for it?

Official Release of LuneOS and Project Updates
WebOS Ports releases LuneOS with it's first release called Affogato. Read all about it at link hidden, please login to view.
It’s been a long while since we link hidden, please login to view back in June of 2013, but today after months of very hard work we are very proud and happy to provide our latest release to the community now named “LuneOS”.
The first eye catching change is the new name we’ll be using for our project going forward. The distribution will be called “LuneOS” instead of “WebOS Ports Open webOS” because it wasn’t very catchy. Lune is the French translation of moon and refers to the user interface we all love so much in legacy webOS, LunaSysMgr, which is named after the Latin/Spanish translation of moon.
The release model for LuneOS is a rolling one where each of the releases will get its own name from a list of coffee beverages. This first release is “Affogato”....link hidden, please login to view
