Add Pinterest image pinning to your TouchPad with a patch

We're not entirely onboard with Pinterest's pinboard-inspired photo sharing social network, but we can understand why somebody would be. It seems like it might be fun, you know, if we had anything worth sharing. webOS Nation forum member BeckeyJane found herself wanting better (read: any) Pinterest support for her TouchPad, and she found her savior in fellow member and webOS developer hkowalczyk.

Mr. Kowalczyk just so happens to have a wife who's also an active Pinterest user, so he created a patch to add "Pin This" to the tap+hold images context menu in the webOS browser. Essentially it's a bookmarklet that throw's that images URL over to Pinterest for pinning on your pinboard (obviously a Pinterest account is required for this to work and be useful).

The patch is available right now in the webOS Nation forums - just download it on you computer and install with webOS Quick Install or use Preware or Internalz on your TouchPad. It's pinteresting.
