PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, HP killed its webOS devices unit. Over the weekend, the company slashed the prices on the TouchPad. The result? The TouchPad sold out completely in a matter of hours. This confirms what I've been hearing from friends and family: "I'd love a tablet, but I'm not paying laptop money for one."

That's so Euro, I love seeing everyone wave their titles over across the pond, not just on a diploma, but really get into it.

Booking a Lufthansa flight, the friggin' drop-down for title actually offers Mr. Prof. Dr. as an option. Really? I'm booking a plane ticket, not trying to join a country club - though clearly the staff can't show me the proper respect if I don't fill in my titles. That's Herr Prof. Dr. Mag. Dir. Senatsrat to you!

Sorry, pet peeve.

Uh, back on topic, I would have picked up a Prof. Dr. TouchPad myself for $99 just to have check out the UI and have one in the closet as a collectible.
