Vector 44: The legacy of webOS
Vector is a news and analysis show focusing on the biggest stories, hottest trends, and most important issues in technology, past, present, and future. On this week's show, five years after the launch of the original Palm Pre, Derek Kessler of Mobile Nations talks to Rene about webOS, its rise, its fall, and how its interface and feature set still influence everything from Android to BlackBerry to iOS. (Spoiler alert: The former lead designer of webOS, Matias Duarte, has been the lead designer of Android since before Ice Cream Sandwich!)
