We love us some new technology, and we certainly give it its fair shake on today’s episode of the Pocketnow Weekly. But every so often, you need to give a little lip-service to the tech of days gone by. The platforms and devices of yesteryear. That’s right: I’m talking about dead technology.
It makes sense, then, that a man going by the twitter handle DeadTechnology is here to help us dust off those fond memories. In his inaugural visit to the Pocketnow Weekly, our own Adam Doud pulls back the veil of
public apathy secrecy surrounding the phenomenon of the “webOS meetup,” a regular gathering of Palm holdouts, and tells us what it’s like to get some time up-close and personal with those unicorns of the webOS world, the TouchPad Go and the Windsor Not.
In addition, we’ve got all the usual smattering of statistics and fun facts from the more-modern world of Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry – and even Amazon. So stack your cards and Just Type your way to the feeds below: this week’s rounded river stone of the Pocketnow Weekly is waiting for you to lift it from the Stream of Special Memories.
