Why the Hell Are People Buying Touchpads for $300 on eBay?

Ah, the HP Touchpad. When it was previewed, it looked amazing. When it was reviewed, it was smashed. When it was launched, it was ignored. When HP killed webOS and dropped the price to $100, it sold out? Yes. And now it's selling for more than retail on eBay.

What. The. Hell. Is. Going. On. PEOPLE! HP is selling it at $100 (which makes it a great deal) because they don't want to think about it anymore, they want to get rid of it and pretend it never happened. It's a dead device. Dead dead dead. Yes, we said that you can flip the tablet into one of many things but that's at 100 bucks, at 300 bucks the deal isn't as sweet. Why the hell would you drop nearly 300 bucks on a dead device when you could've paid a little more when it was alive and kicking? I don't understand you Internet, I don't understand you one bit.
