hpwebos.com revamped as a depressing and inaccurate hardware graveyard

Really, guys? Really?

Since when did Touch-to-Share allow sharing of anything other than URLs, let alone ambiguous media? And when did the Palm Pixi Plus get updated to webOS 2.0? And isn't it a little disengenuous to be claiming the Palm Pre Plus got 2.0 when only one country in Europe got the update, and they had to download the webOS Doctor to install it? And how did we miss that the HP Veer got an updated that enabled Touch-to-Share functionality? And weren't the Pre3 and Veer HP-branded, not Palm?

HP, this is silly. You probably should have just gone with an automatic redirect to openwebosproject.org instead of building what amounts to a depressing animated (via HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript!) graveyard of webOS hardware past and even more past. And way to not touch on anything that makes webOS unique. Like, you know, web technologies, unobtrusive and interactive notifications, Synergy data unification, the multitasking… oh screw it.
