Giant TV screens are pretty great. Tablets are pretty great. But controlling a tablet's touch interface on your TV is a terrible, garbage experience.
Wacom is covering all grounds lately with new products. Their latest is the Bamboo Pad, a touch surface with the gesture control the likes of an Apple Magic Trackpad, with some added functionality for drawing and jotting down notes.
Unless you've got a Google Nexus 7, you're going to be waiting a while for the official release of Jelly Bean for your tablet. Which is why it's a little surprising—and dare we say funny—that it's already popped up on HP's aborted TouchPad
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.
HP tablets are dead! No they aren't! Yes they are! Either way, Fox claims they're at least on some sort of life support, and being tested with Windows 8.
Well now isn't this something. HP's discontinued-and-firesaled TouchPad got an OTA webOS upgrade today.
The HP Touchpad just jumped up a few notches on the tablet scale now that the first public release of CyanogenMod is available for download.
HP may meet on Tuesday to discuss the future of webOS, according to a rumor from AppleInsider. The hardware giant could decide to sell the webOS unit or spin it off into a separate entity.
Do you like looking at pictures of dead things? Of course you do: We've already seen photos of the James Dean of TouchPads, but PreCentral dug up details on its actual specs and HP's plans for the tablet.
So here's what you need to know about why HP fired CEO Leo Apotheker: it's not because of the choices he made, it's how he executed them. So TouchPad is still dead. PCs are still being shunned. And round and round and round we go.
Bloomberg reports that the HP board is going to meet soon to decide whether or not to fire CEO Léo Apotheker. And I don't see how that makes matters anything but worse.
Today we heard that the UK is getting jobbed out of its final shipment of $100 TouchPads, with only HP employees being eligible to buy them. Sozzlepops, UK chaps.
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.
People really love this cheap TouchPad thing. So much, in fact, that HP set up an email alert system to let you know when TouchPads are back in stock. Today the emails went out, but it wasn't for TouchPads. It was for printers. And ink cartridges. And literally everything but TouchPads:
After killing the TouchPad and fire sale-ing them at a $100 to get rid of them, HP has announced that they'll still make TouchPads through October. What in the deepest depths of hell is going on?
