PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, we have the iPad out and about for a while now, doing its thing, most likely selling well. Of course, others want a piece of that pie as well, so we see tablets pop up all over the place, most of which are either ultra-low budget junk or vapourware (how that's Adam coming along, Notion Ink?). Earlier this year, Steve Ballmer proudly held up HP's Windows 7-powered Slate - but then, HP bought Palm, canned the Slate, promised a webOS tablet, and then resurrected the Slate as an enterprise product. Now we have a video of the Windows 7-powered Slate. Let's compare it to Samsung's detailed overview of its Galaxy Tab, and see ever so clearly why HP canned the darn thing in the first place.

Oh please, we both know you're not cool; if you were, you wouldn't be here.

Of course you didn't mean anything, you were just showing that popularity does not equal quality by example of products that are negatively stereotyped with unrefined mainstream taste.
No, that wasn't what I was 'showing' at all.

No implications there at all.
Evidentially not, given your continued failure to comprehend a simple facetious point.

Funny how Android is being snapped up by the mainstream but I don't see anyone here questioning its quality based on popularity.
Uh huh... run this by me one more time. You think these premises are the same?
popularity does not equal quality
questioning its quality based on popularity

You go from stating that there's no relationship, to stating that there's an inversely proportional one. You go to the trouble of setting up a strawman, then proceed to a non sequitur. No wonder you're having so much trouble: you can't even follow your own bullshit to it's logical conclusion, let alone anyone else's.
