PreCentral: webOS VP of Marketing departs… not that there's much to market right now

webOS VP of Marketing departs… not that there's much to market right now

Yet another HP executive is leaving webOS, this time it's VP of Marketing David Gee who is heading out. Gee served in the role as webOS marketing chief for five quarters (which seems to be significantly longer than most of HP's webOS executive appointments), prior to that spending seven years as the marketing VP for HP Software and HP Enterprise Services. Gee is headed to IT automation provider Infoblox as their new Executive Vice President of Marketing.

We can't say we really blame Gee for leaving the webOS group, it's not like his job was really needed at this point for webOS.

. So he's headed to greener pastures, and, as he told us, "returning to my enterprise infrastructure roots" with the move to Infoblox.

Gee's departure appears to be on much more amicable terms than the

, we'd honestly be surprised if there was a marketing team left, mostly surprised that HP would let go engineers from what amounts to a software engineering project before marketers. Given how well HP's marketing efforts went before things went south, perhaps some fresh blood is needed in the webOS marketing department anyway. Or a whole new team, maybe. Really, we won't likely have an idea what's going on with webOS marketing for some time. So long as there's somebody, eventually, with what amounts to a good plan, then we'll be cool.

      OLED65B8 webOS browser won't accept password for Amazon.com account.  Winows Chrome on desktop or Android phone both sign in normally.
      I have several other account sign-ins that do the same thing -- work on desktop but not on TV.  What's going on?

      Hello.. I want to install latest webos system version to my tv .. I think rooting it may help .. is there any guide or steps to follow to do that ? 
      Also I want to be able to rollback to my current version if the install with root failed due to drivers for example.

      So LG has put webOS on TVs, projectors, and now cars with webos auto. Does anyone thing LG will ever produce a webos powered smartphone or tablet? I know samsung has tried with tizen and it was only with the palm pre 2 and touchpad from HP that we saw webos on these types of devices. Just curious on what everyone thingks. Here's what webos used to look like..
