    I got through on my TouchPad booted in Android? I thought I was signed on to Google+ on my Chromebook. Weird!

    The Vimeo video won't work for me due to firewall issues so I found the "mobile is dead" video on Youtube. The comment comes about 11 minutes in. As for the Google+ thing, meh. It needs to be on the plain old internet for me to find it. I'm not going through some "add me to your circles" ritual every time I want to read some guy's blog.

    I guess you need a G+ account? Some of these sites let you post publicly accessible content.

    It is days like this I wish I had a Nexus phone...

    ''The multitasking was also improved and received a new look in the Android 5.0 L update.*Recent apps are now shown as cards stacked one over another, while apps like Chrome can show more than one card.''

    ...Again Android influenced from what Web OS gave us years ago!

    Is that any surprise with Matius Duarte as Google's Vice President for Design? ;)

    Nope! I'm glad he's there. The ''cards'' feature is one of the best features that I like in Web OS!

    Thanks Jig. Reading the link & others it sure reveals that they have a long way to go. I'm not going to try it out on the last TouchPad I got for $60 a few months ago - which I'm not using (great back up). I still think the problem will be lack of apps.

    As much as I love Web OS & tolerate Android - I rely upon Android apps more & more. As much as I keep watching sales of the HP Pre 3 on Ebay (watched a new one go for $61 a week ago) & as much as I like the design & wish I could have one - I remind myself of what I couldn't do using it as my main phone.

    I do hope & wish the best for this group working on the project!
