Quote of the day

by Volker Weber

If I were in charge at HP, the TouchPad would have been sold for $99, but you'd have needed to buy red, green and blue pixel cartridges every few months for $19 each.

@Richard: Talk to eInk. Great idea for the next generation of eReaders. No more buying books, but eInk. Since it would "fade" you need to continue buying even if you don't add another book.
+1 for startup idea of the year.

Wait, is this quote from before HP put the Touchpad on sale for $99/$149 or after? :-)

It was before. I work for HP, but I had no advance knowledge of the $99/$149 sale when I posted that line.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
