way too much FUD from Derek
one thing seems certain to me
without a smartphone running webOS, its potential will remain woefully undervalued
webOS was conceived & breed for smartphones
its many advantages are best realized on smartphones
smartphones are the core of mobile computing
HP developed & released a ground breaking smartphone, only it is not the Pre3
the Veer has a bold design that is useful
its magnetic connectors are novel & very handy ...don't know that I ever want to plugin any other connnector after using one
my Veer works perfectly plain vanilla on AT&T

so.. You did take out that part that happened in the live podcast... Lol
