One of the biggest reasons Pebble was a damn fine smartwatch was its entirely reasonable price. Back in December, the Kickstarter success story sold off its assets to Fitbit and was promptly shut down. Today, we learned how much it was sold for, and it seems those low, low prices continued into its demise.
The HP TouchPad, the Michael Myers-like tablet that just won't die, just popped up on Woot for a pretty cheapish $220. Two benji's and a jacksonw will score you the 32GB version. That's a little more expensive than it was during the great firesale of 2011 but with webOS becoming open source, maybe there's value in it!
The time's come, cheapasses: HP's $99 TouchPad firesale is about to make its triumphant return. Oh my god I've waited so long for this.
So HP's finally let loose another load of firesale 32GB TouchPads for $149, which will be available at Best Buy Starting November 1st. That would be totally great and welcome news except for one thing: You've got to buy a HP computer to get the sale price. Come on.
The latest bit in the increasingly amusing Laurel and Hardy routine that is the HP TouchPad: HP just tried to sue itself for offering HP TouchPad refunds. No, seriously. This is a thing that happened.
Since no one wanted to buy the space shuttles when NASA first offered them up for sale, the agency has decided to slash the price to a more modest $28.8 million each. And the engines? Free (pay only S+H).
