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."

I've checked, and the internet is open on week-ends.

But we do not all have a server farm with spiders crawling the web continuously. Some of us kind of rely on OSNews OSS feed to get interesting news.
I know Tom is not paid for this so I forgive him but I would like to get back in time just one day and have my Touchpad for €70.

Sorry for the sarcasm - I too rely on places like OSNews, Google News, Linux Today, Slashdot, Digg.com, etc. So, Thom, no more dalliances with school and all!

I wish I could have gotten a Touchpad, too. Even more, I wish Palm was still a company, and still evolving and growing. It's a shame when a pioneer in computing like Palm goes down the drain. Rows and columns of icons on a touchscreen - yeah, that was certainly invented by Apple.
