Video: Palm webOS Pioneering key features are now borrowed by iOS, Android, and Blackberry.



Something that maybe you will remember with love, was written by our colleagues of the CalgaryHerald with an excellent description of every pioneering Palm webOS key features that are now replicated by rival mobile operating systems.
This is what  GADJO CARDENAS SEVILLA, WHATSYOURTECH.CA, CALGARY HERALD said:
It has been two years since HP shelved the webOS mobile operating system it inherited from Palm, yet many of the key features of that pioneering smartphone and tablet OS are now standard features in iOS, Android and even BlackBerry.

Looking at the mobile landscape today, it is clear that a nu…

Your used iPhone has a $280 credit value.


Apple kicked off a long-awaited iPhone trade-in program for its U.S. retail stores on Friday, the latest in its efforts to attract and retain customers for its smartphones.
The Cupertino, Calif. tech giant said its “reuse and recycling” program emphasizes the value of iPhones, even after they’ve been used.
“In addition to helping support the environment, customers will be able to receive a credit for their returned phone that they can use toward the purchase of a new iPhone,” a company spokeswoman said.
To get a credit, customers have to show that their trade-in iPhone works by powering it on. Customers also have to be in wireless carrier contracts when they leave the store, Apple employees said.
Trading in and buying a new phone through the program won’t re-start a customer’s contract, a person familiar with the process said. Additionally, if the cost of phone they’re buying is lower than …
