    OK guys, the end of support is near. Here is the official announcement:

    webOS Cloud Services to end January 15, 2015

    Cloud services support for webOS devices will be ending on January 15, 2015. We appreciate our customer's loyalty the webOS platform. But now, more than three (3) years after the last device was sold, only a small fraction of the devices are still connecting. Therefore, the time has come to shut down the services.

    All devices running webOS devices will continue to run after the cloud services are terminated. However, they will no longer be able to:
    Download new apps or updates. The HP App Catalog will be unavailable after the shutdown
    Backup or restore devices from the cloud
    Setup new devices
    Recover lost passwords
    What this means to you:

    The HP App Catalog will stop supporting new app purchases on November 1, 2014
    Updates may be posted by developers until November 10, 2014 and users can download any available updates until the services shut down
    You should make arrangements to backup or transfer your contacts, etc.prior to the service shutdown on January 15, 2015
    You will no longer be able to backup, restore, reset or initialize a webOS device as of January 15, 2015
    There will be additional reminders as the final shutdown approaches. An FAQ can be found at
