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."

All you have to do is plug it into a usb port and copy files over to it like you would to a flash drive.

You must not have grandparents. ( I apologize if you actually don't )

Seriously though, my parents, grandparents and many others barely understand what the "Desktop" is, let alone how to drag and drop files into a flash drive.

Quick story:
I once had to walk this guy through the steps of emailing us photos, over the phone. I figured as long as he knew where the images where ( he didn't ) that he could simply move them to the desktop temporarily so he wouldn't have to wade through folders trying to find them again. After he finally found the images I told him to drag them to the desktop and his response was, "Whoa, hold on now... what's this 'Desktop' thing?". The whole process took over an hour...
