PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We're living in crazy times, that's for sure. Less than two weeks ago, HP announced it was going to quit making webOS devices. To get rid of existing stock, HP drastically cut the price of the TouchPad to a mere $99 - and this has resulted in a massive run on the device. Lines formed everywhere, and the device is now completely sold out. So, HP has just announced it is going to... Build an additional limited run of TouchPads.

This is just crazy. I'm trying to come with an analogues technology product which was also canned, rose in popularity, and then brought back to manufacturing to meet demand. I'm sure it happens with popular product which get canned - but unpopular products? I'll be glad for any examples you may have.


Thom, you are such fanboy...

terrible.
