No-Nonsense Weather for WebOS Support Ends Aug. 31

No-Nonsense Weather

In light of Hewlett-Packard’s announcement that HP will be terminating its ‘WebOS device operations,’ combined with HP’s failure to release WebOS 2.x for my Pre Plus and a general ongoing pattern of mismanagement of the platform, I am terminating all support for No-Nonsense Weather for HP WebOS effective August 31, 2011.

On the evening of August 31, 2011, I will be removing the application from the WebOS App Catalog. If you want it on your WebOS device through the App Catalog channel, you will need download it before then.

I will leave the source code on the No-Nonsense Weather for HP WebOS page indefinitely. In accordance with the terms of the GNU-GPL 2.0 license, you are welcome to take the code and use it to make your own fork of the application. I only ask that you please give it a new name if you choose to fork it, in order to reduce customer confusion.

For those of you who are fellow WebOS exiles now on the Android platform, stay tuned. I am working on No-Nonsense Weather for Android. More information to follow.…

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
