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."

"A customer enters a Best Buy shop.

Mr. Praline: 'Ello, I wish to register a complaint.

(The owner does not respond.)

Mr. Praline: 'Ello, Miss?

Owner: What do you mean "miss"?

Not to be picky, but "owner" is probably not the right noun to use here. In fact I seriously doubt the "owner" of Best Buy would be sitting behind the counter! *grin*

Also: should we insert the customary "you're holding it wrong" joke to balance things out?

That said, it's good to see you prefer to come up with drivel like this rather than explain why Apple's market "dominance" is good for the consumers but, hey, if that makes you happy...


Your humour bypass worked out OK I see and the pedantic implant seems to be functioning well ;)

Apple's 'market dominance' is the result of the consumer deciding that Apple products are better than competing products. Thus for consumers it's a good thing. They get to buy product they prefer.
