Remember webOS? The promising but failed operating system created Palm, acquired by and seemingly killed off by HP has found a new home. Surprisingly, it's not on a smartphone or tablet, but instead, a television LG is likely to showcase next week. Reliable leak source evleaks has posted a photo of a television appearing to run webOS with a simple caption: "webOS TV, by LG, 2014." The image showcases a slim cutout of various apps running on on the TV, including:

- Live TV
- YouTube
- Facebook
- Skype
- AccuWeather
- vTuner (Internet radio)
- Twitter
- Internet (browser)
- Smartshare (DLNA streaming from mobile to TV)

LG said it would explore using webOS to power its web-connected televisions. Though it already sells Google TV and Smart TV products, it looks as though a webOS television set will go on sale soon, with a CES unveiling possible next week.
