WebOS 2.0 Device With Retina Display Spotted in App Logs?

A Metrix developer log sighting reveals what may be a webOS 2.0 device with a 960x640 "Retina" display, according to PreCentral.

It’s happened again folks, another Metrix developer log sighting of the infamous webOS 2.0-running Roadrunner, this time packing an “HD” suffix. What, pray tell, does HD mean in this case? It means an iPhone 4-matching 640x960 resolution, or at least that’s what was reported back to the logs.

This is the second sighting webOS 2.0 in application logs but the first of a device that has a screen resolution of 640 x 960; the same resolution as the iPhone 4’s Retina Display.

HP recently announced that a webOS tablet would arrive in early 2011 but it's unclear when the company will release their first webOS smartphone.

Like has been acquired by Google.

Since 2006, has been moving the frontiers of eCommerce forward one step at a time. We were the first to bring visual search to shopping, the first to build an automated cross-matching system for clothing, and more. We didn't stop there, and don't have plans to stop now. We see joining Google as a way to supersize our vision and supercharge our passion. This is something we are truly excited about.

Along the way we built a team that was not just hard working bus obsessed with the mission at hand. We are so very proud of this team, and they deserve all the credit for how far we have come. In addition, there are many folks outside the company who have been pivotal to our success. All the alumni are incredible folks who left our little company better than they found it. Our investors were patient, insightful, and supportive of our plans to build a bigger platform. Our merchant partners were cutting edge and innovation, and in many cases they were willing to try new approaches and new technologies to better the user experience.

Creating a startup is like painting an Impressionist canvas: on the one hand you try and reflect what the world looks like, and on the other you try and enrich - and maybe even change it with your creation. I think we achieved a little bit of both at



It's unclear what plans Google has for the company at this time...

Apple Magic TrackPad Modded to Run Off USB Power

Markbog, a MacRumors forum member, has modded his Apple Magic TrackPad to run off usb power.

Hi all, thought you might be interested in this... I don't like using batteries in desktop peripherals, they're horrible for the environment compared to wired power, and there's no need for batteries when it's just going to be sitting on a desk all day. So I took out the batteries in the Magic Trackpad, stripped an old USB cord down to the red and black power wires, and attached them to a battery-sized dowel. Works great!
