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."

Yes.

Geeks also play a role in the Mac audience, though, either when they use the machines (because OS X can be a better fit than Windows for the minority of geeks who need no Windows software* or don't feel ridiculous when spending most of their time in a Windows VM) or when they suggest other people to use it.

But I don't think this is a significant part of the Mac audience as compared to the rest.

* (And again you need to buy a mac if you want to use OS X)
