Will the TouchPad ride again? HP apparently just internally announced a new division focused on mobile within the Personal Systems Group. This new team, named in HP’s traditional jargon, Mobility Global Business Unit, is essentially responsible for getting HP back in the tablet fight.
Details are still a bit light. This word comes from a leaked memo obtained by the The Verge. The memo says in part, “With this move, we are building on our commitment to re-invest in mobility via dedicated leadership, focused research and development, amazing new products and a growing suite of applications and services.” It sounds like HP is finally getting serious about tablets.
Once upon a time, HP simply purchased Palm to lead the company into the mobile arena. But that $ 1.2 billion purchase didn’t work out in terms of hardware. After initially committing to double down on webOS, the company launched the HP TouchPad, a quality tablet that never had a chance thanks to its high price and lack of developer support. However, with the purchase of Palm, HP acquired 1,500 of Palms patents — it’s likely HP is ready to build upon the foundation laid by Palm.
This new unit will initially focus on consumer tablets, but will eventually grow and expand into new categories and segments (smartphones?), says the memo. The group is under the PSG, which is headed by Toddy Bradley. However, HP turned to Alberto Torres, ex-executive vice president of Nokia, to lead this new unit. Torres previously led Nokia’s MeeGo effort. Torres is also currently the vice-chairman of Bang & Olufsen, a high-end audio company that prides itself on forward-thinking designs. And HP needs all the design help it can get.
HP also currently has a tablet nearing release. The memo notes that tablet, along with the existing notebook teams, will in the PC unit and under the leadership of James Mouton. Or, put a different way, the good tablets will come later.Related Posts:
That was fast. Just days after Twitter 4.3 had its details prematurely spilled all over the Internet, it’s now raring to go for both Android (as version 3.3) and iOS users. Like we’d seen in early release notes, its focus is on expanding tweets to provide a glimpse at content when linking beyond just photos. Along with showing snippets from news outlets such as C-SPAN, Twitter’s app now teases content from Etsy, Kickstarter and Vimeo, among others — just in case you’d like to know whether that upcoming game console is worth funding at a glance. Notifications are getting their own promised boost and can send an alert whenever certain Twitter accounts post any kind of update. The improved search autocomplete shows its face as well, and iOS users get a more advanced layout for tracking hashtags during live events. Users with other smartphone platforms will have to wait for the 4.3 feature set to filter through to their devices, but if you’re of an Apple or Google bent, one of Twitter’s bigger updates of recent memory is already headed your way.

This is a viral ad for the TNT network in Belgium. Basically they set up a button in a random Belgian square then waited for somebody to push it. When someone finally does a whole choreographed shitstorm goes down (plus a girl on a motorcycle in lingerie). I think people were warned what was gonna happen though. Because there’s some gunfire and, unless you know something is 120% fake, if you see someone with a gun YOU HIT THE F***ING DECK. That said, I’m always afraid I’m gonna get caught up in some flash mob or prank like this and wind up killing everybody before I realize it was a joke. Shoot first and ask questions later watch the local news back at the safe-house — that’s my motto.
Hit the jump for the commercial.Related Posts:
