HP webOS "Innovation"

DailyTech - HP Brushes Jon Rubinstein Aside, Taps Stephen DeWitt to Head webOS
"Rubinsten (creator of webOS) will become HP's SVP for Product Innovation in the Personal Systems Group"

HP used to have word "invent" in the logo.
That was the time when marketing appeared to be more important than engineering in HP. Hopefully this is no the case this time.

Now, they are inventing "innovation VP" and apparently getting ready to make some real money from webOS... This could mean less Windows from HP.

Maybe Microsoft should have purchased Palm...
It would be much cheaper and faster than making
web apps platform for Windows 8, and competing with one more OS...
