PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Earlier this week, we reported on the apparent death of Michael Arrington's dream, the CrunchPad. The CrunchPad was supposed to be a slick tablet, but according to an emotional blog post by Arrington the project had been more or less stolen from him by Chandrasekar "Chandra" Rathakrishnan, CEO of Fusion Garage. Rathakrishnan has announced to hold a press event Monday, telling his side of the story, as well as a brief demonstration of the actual device.

I hadn't even considered that this could be some diabolical marketing ploy. Now that you point it out, it sounds completely believable.

Well, if that is the case it is not working.... all that stunt hasn't disoriented me enough to figure out that for $100 less, one can have a nettop which does everything this does and much much much much much much more.

If it was a marketing attempt, it reeks of a desperate hail mary pass. LOL
