http://www.engadget.com/2011/02/11/hp-donates-server-to-webos-internals-makes-homebrew-its-boo/ Sure, it's not that big of a purchase, but WebOS Internals's is Palm's version of Cydia. This would be similar to Apple donating some hardware to Cydia. What's more interesting though is the symbolic nature of the donation. It means HP will not fight those who want to modify the devices beyond their intended factory use. Apple really should open up a little. Apple could squash a lot of criticism if they just allowed you to install applications outside of the iTunes universe. In Android you just have to go into a section of the settings and check a box labeled "Allow Installation of 3rd party applications from untrusted sources" and you're in business. It'd cost Apple nothing and a warning disclaimer absolves them of all responsibility.
