    The article, from Beatweek Magazine, is titled, "HP TouchPad dead-weight sale: five reasons tablet isnít worth $99".
    Here's the link:
    HP TouchPad dead-weight sale: five reasons tablet isnít worth $99 : Beatweek Magazine

    While certainly everyone is entitled their opinion, even tech writers, this is just crazy. I could quote the author and negate his blatantly wrong "facts" but it would take too long. Check out the article and just try not to have a puzzled look on your brow. "Thereís absolutely no reason to buy one," I think not. It's too bad the comments are closed on the article or I'd give the author an ear-full.

    You're right, but that doesn't mean they're entitled to a good opinion...

    And it makes the same points others are making here in just different ways.

    Yeah not really going to expect a biased review form a site that states in the About section
    "Beatweek is the publication for music, podcasting, iPhone, iPad, iPod, and social media
    lovers"

    Might as well ask Steve Jobs to write the review thought as technology guy even Steve would be more upbeat. Also I like his reference to Geek writers. I suppose we are to trust the hipster writers of "Beatweek". (Note I had to recheck the website title cause it was so easly forgotten).

    Didn't bother to read it, but quite obviously there are thousands of people who don't share his opinion.

    Actually that article/"review" could be very good for the webOS faithful. Normal non-webOS knowing potential purchasers may read it and decide not to buy from eBay etc. The resellers may then reduce the prices just to get rid of them, meaning that we can buy them. Well, here's hoping, anyway! :P

    This is not a "bad review"... this is a IPad ads!!

    Interesting... if the webOS is dead, if the Touchpad is bad... there is many, but really many people now uncomfortable, that never has manifested against the Androids/xing-ling tablets that cost $ 99.00...

    I can imagine "why"...

    (Forgive me if this has already been posted; I couldn't find if it was, but maybe I was just blind and dumb. Anyways...)

    I stumbled upon this article which states that even for $99, the Touchpad is a bad deal: [url]

    I can admit that at first I thought he was serious... and then I looked at some of the other articles:
    * "iPhone 5 release date delivers iPhone 4S as sub-$100 bargain sidekick"
    * "Duet: Lady GaGa and Cher confirm collaboration on ďThe Greatest ThingĒ"

    ...Unless this guy IS serious. In that case, woe to him, because I'm sure he's going to have another hole ripped into him. Too bad his comments are disabed...

    My favorite line from the "article":

    "There’s absolutely no reason to buy one."

    Right. Because I haven't been lusting after a 9.7-inch tablet for web browsing and ebooks for the past two years. And God knows the TouchPad can't do those two things.
