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."

You really do have to credit Apple's marketing machine for this. They have done an amazing job convincing the world that their products are the best because they're the most aesthetic and that people should pay the higher prices for them. All criticism of their litigation obsession aside, they are true masters at selling a product.
