In one of the recent news discussions, @KnightWRX was describing his experiences applying Preware patches to WebOS 3.0.2: Thanks to @KnightWRX for the detailed description of his experience with his TouchPad and these patches. I had a lot of trouble believing this story at first, but there's plenty of evidence around that these patches have a dramatic impact on the responsiveness of the WebOS UI. What is unbelievable about the story is that HP would ship a product with a sluggish interface when it would have been so easy to make it work better. This wasn't the only factor, but it seems to be a huge factor in the failure of the TouchPad. This sounds like a huge story, but I haven't seen any of the tech websites write about it. How could a company like HP make an error of this magnitude?
