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."

Your humour bypass worked out OK I see and the pedantic implant seems to be functioning well ;)

If yours was an attempt at humour then it was very lame and I recommend you stick to your "straight off the press release" posts you're so much better at.

Apple's 'market dominance' is the result of the consumer deciding that Apple products are better than competing products. Thus for consumers it's a good thing. They get to buy product they prefer.

Not only is debatable whether there's any actual dominance at all, you're still not explaining why this is a good thing for me as a consumer: over the years I've bought 3 Mac minis, 1 Mac Pro, several iPods and 1 iPhone but I still can't find a reason to get all excited about Apple's "dominance" -- not to mention that Apple's behaviour has been pissing me off for quite some time now.
