PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We're living in crazy times, that's for sure. Less than two weeks ago, HP announced it was going to quit making webOS devices. To get rid of existing stock, HP drastically cut the price of the TouchPad to a mere $99 - and this has resulted in a massive run on the device. Lines formed everywhere, and the device is now completely sold out. So, HP has just announced it is going to... Build an additional limited run of TouchPads.

Sorry for the off-topic comment but this sentence caught my eye: "Even if webOS will no longer be supported - Android is one the way." Can someone break it down (syntactically) for me? I've understood what Thom meant (that TouchPads can also run Android which is still supported) but the syntax is new to me.

I assumed it was a typo, and meant to read:

"Even if webOS will no longer be supported - Android is on the way."

May be wrong though, but that was how I read it.

That's probably what was meant - and considering I saw this yesterday, I think it's pretty much correct:

BTW, Multiboot FTW!
