PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ars Technica is reporting that US Retailer Best Buy has been able to sell less than 10% of the TouchPad tablets that it ordered from HP, and now wants HP to take them back. Similarly, deal-a-day site Woot offered TouchPads at a very aggressive price, and only managed to sell 612 of them. This is for a site that often sells out goofy tech widgets in hours. When the TouchPad was gearing up for release, there seemed to be a fair amount of interest among geeks. Is it just that it hasn't resonated the same way with the general public, or have people just been disappointed once they've put their hands on one?

Pick your poison, you're getting subjective news either way.

What anti-Apple, pro-Android news?

Anyway, the answer to your question is yes. If Apple had employees come round to the house of every iDevice owner and smear them in shit then beat them senseless with sticks, Gruber would find a way to argue that this was a positive move by Apple. Quoting him in support of an argument actually harms the argument.
