MC2 Post 1122 HP is Restocking The Dead Winner


From:  http://techcrunch.com




HP: We’re Producing One Last Run Of TouchPads To Meet Demand

From the HP blog, which is currently bogged down by a ton of traffic:

Q: When is HP getting more HP TouchPads? One week, two weeks, a month?

A limited supply are coming and it will be a few weeks before they are available. As we know more about how, when, and where TouchPads will be available, we will communicate that here and through email to those who requested notification. We can tell you that HP’s Small and Medium Business team has sold out of HP TouchPads and will not have more inventory.

Q: Can you comment on whether HP had to manufacture more to meet the recent demand?

HP will be manufacturing a limited quantity of TouchPads with webOS during our fourth fiscal quarter 2011, which ends October 31.

Q: Will HP continue to make more TouchPads with webOS to meet the demand?

HP is discontinuing the development of webOS devices and is winding down device operations within our fourth fiscal quarter 2011.




=============================

HP: TouchPad Will Receive OTA Update 
for Added 'Functionality'.
  
But It's Still Dead-To-US.


HP may have abandoned the TouchPad, but that apparently won't stop the company from issuing a post-mortem OTA update for its webOS tablet.

 Wingman IS on the List.

We in Android Developer Relations have been cooking up a rather special set of Android Developer Labs (ADLs) for the second half of 2011, and we’re ready to start the ball rolling.

Here’s the schedule. These are one-day events, so in Seattle and New York we’re running it twice for two audiences.

MC2 Post 1118 What Pushed Jobs To This Decision At This Time?





Pondering the View into a Crystal Apple






The First Shoes:

I believe the HP Thunderclap of Selling 300,000 $100 Dollar Touchpads this past weekend was
the final straw.  

His Beautiful iPad had been turned into a less brilliant, commodity product overnight.

And it came from his Favorite teenage Tech Company HP, that gave him a summer job.

The First Shoe:  "Hewlett-Packard just decided to Get-Out of Personal computer and tablet business."

This is the "same company" that owned the property where Apple's New Campus: 

dubbed the "Mother Ship" will be built.

MC2 Post 1117 Steve Jobs' Apple-- A TimeLine






Steve Jobs' Apple: a Timeline


I heard about at the end of Tech News Today, as Tom Merritt was tying up the close when News Break flashed on his computer and his Reporters instincts kicked in.  He read the initial News Break: That Steve Jobs was stepping Down as CEO of Apple. 







===========================
===========================

A Peek at Steve Jobs' Book Jacket -front, 
back and spline.


"The cover," writes Isaacson in private e-mail, "is the Albert Watson portrait taken for Fortune in 2009. The back is a Norman Seeff portrait of him in the lotus position holding the original Macintosh, which ran in Rolling Stone in January 1984. The title font is Helvetica. It will look as you see it, with no words on the back cover."

MC2 Post 1115 If You Got a HP TouchPad for 100 Bucks Call Yourself REAL Lucky




HP's Dead Winner.


Because This Weekend BestBuy Sold 0ver 
 
 
300,000 of these babies....



For those unaware about why the Crazy Low-ball Price and What the Heck is a HP TouchPad please 

Read this Engadget Review:

HP TouchPad review
which was done on June 29th 2011.

That's why the original price is Listed at $499.99 for the 
16GB model, $599.99 for 32GB.

That's exactly on parity with the WiFi iPad 2 and Galaxy Tab 10.1, current kings of the tablet court.

Because HP decided to GET-OUT of the Consumer Electronic Business Last Week, the price dropped to



$100 for the 16GB and $149 for the 32GB.

Hence the Black Friday Like Sell-Off.

MC2 Post 1113 When The Wingman Flubs He Flubs BIG TIME








First, my Sis asked for help re-installing Firefox this week.


I told her to hold off for a bit (Geek-Speak), because a new updated version was being released this week too.

Forgetting that I was running 4.0b7 I went to the download page and grabbed 5.0.  It took longer than it had any right to because it removed  my handy toolbar and replaced it with what I call Bloat-Ware.  That got me mad and after another 1/2 of getting my new install back to where it should have been, I published the following gee-I-was-proud-of-myself Post:

A couple of days later, I saw the New Updated Firefox was 6.0 Not 5.0.

Huh?

How Did That Happen?


How the Flub Happened.
Then I remembered, I installed 5.01 a while ago and found a lot of plugin problems so I reverted to the then stable 4.0b7 and the plugin-problem was gone and
I forgot about it.

That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

Wingman.

P.S. I like Chrome Better.

And I've been spending a lot of time playing around 
with Google +.
