Sometimes the tech industry has a way of blindsiding us. Sometimes it has a way of blindsiding us twice in the same week. Such was the case when HP announced earlier today that it would cease all of its current webOS operations, including the discontinuation of the newly launched TouchPad tablet. The news follows only days after another major tech industry shocker, the Google buyout of Motorola for some $12.5 billion. So we are posing the question, which came as the bigger surprise? Sound off in the poll and feel free to discuss amongst yourselves in the comments below.
