Monday/ HP’s un-touch-able Pad

I agree with observers of the tech industry that Hewlett-Packard’s announcement last week that it is getting out of the PC business, is shocking.    Even the new Touchpad tablet – barely two months off the production lines – is getting the chop.   I loved the TV commercials for it, though.  One featured Lea Michele singing ‘Let me entertain you’, and another Manny Pacquiao, a Filipino professional boxer and politician (singing Dan Hill’s ‘Sometimes When We Touch’ !  Wow).    So first nobody would touch the Pad – eschewing it for that other Pad – and then there was a run on the TouchPads when HP started giving the 16Gb one away for $100 and the 32Gb one for $150.   HP’s website does not take orders anymore since they are temporarily out of inventory.    We love you HP! .. too little, and too late?
