A Notch Above

The influence of the 2008-era webOS is uncanny. The gesture “bar”, the card multitasking, inductive charging, designing a typeface specifically for UI and branding. I feel really bad for Palm because the Pre was a phone that was ahead of its time, and yet…

It’s nice to see that the soul of webOS lives on in these modern OS iterations (not counting the awful state that webOS is in at the moment). I wouldn’t call it copying if everyone’s using a solution that works best.
