While I am quite saddened as always by EA buying anouther independant developer being a WebOS user EA has a large prescence already on the platform and I have high hopes of seeing the ipad PvZ and Zuma being ported over in the short future.

I knew they distributed PopCaps games, was kind of surprised to hear about the sale of them to EA. Hopefully they don't screw around with my Bejeweled otherwise I won't hear the end of it from my fiancee.
