It’s common sense that once you buy something it immediately goes down in value. In the fact the moment you drive a brand new car off the lot it’s value plummets. Apparently no one told HP this is how things work. A report from VentrueBeat says HP wanted to recoup their purchase cost for WebOS, which by the way was $1.2 billion. That is incredibly gutsy of HP to ask for that much money for something that they clearly had no success with. Did they really expect anyone in their right mind to pay that much for a failing operating system? Nice try, HP, it’s no wonder no one wanted it.
