    Just watched the new "Everybody On" ad that played on the Grammy's.

    Now without getting into the merits of the ad or the song, the lyrics go:

    "everybody touch"
    "everybody tap"
    "everybody move"
    "everybody app"
    "everybody digg"
    "everybody host"
    "everybody skype"
    "everybody post"
    "everybody dream"
    "everybody sprint"
    "everybody air"
    "everybody print"

    It goes on for several more lyrics but there it is.

    Ok, on the one hand I see how this sounds like really grasping at straws but just give me a sec for my reasoning.

    This is HP - the largest PC manufacturer and distributor in the world, and while I know they aren't infallible, I think a lot of thought went into this first ad and they knew exactly what they were doing by including that line.

    One other point is that HP has stated, on more than one occasion that they will compensate first adopters of the Pre and Pixi. Those folks could have only gotten them on Sprint therefore if the compensation is anything along the lines of a credit for the next phone, there's only one way to do that and that's if the credit is for another phone on the Sprint network.

    Anyway, what are your thoughts on the song lyric placement and it's significance - if any.

    Just one other thing, some have been commenting that it was only there to rhyme with print, which they had to include but if you search for the full lyric list, the rhyming is anything but consistent.

    I did ask for opinions, I just feel even more convinced this morning.

    *because I need to of course!

    Today when I went to go get my first replacement Pre from Sprint he asked me if I wanted to upgrade to an Evo or an Epic. I quickly said no because I am awaiting a Pre 3. He then said, "Oh yea, I saw that in our system yesterday. It looked pretty cool." I asked him if it had a release date and he said no it was just a spec sheet with info for the store. I was really happy when he said this (he was the manager) but because I already knew to take it with a grain of salt I left it as is.

    Just thought I'd share that. Here's hoping!

    You probably could have told him you were waiting for a Super double pre quad series and he would have said the exact same thing.

    Sprint has exclusive to Palm, HP is honoring that. I think Hp will also release it on AT&T for the GSM but for CDMA it will be Sprint. Since Palm has deep roots with Sprint and Sprint helped out Palm when they had financial problems, HP is respecting this and will gowith Sprint but will have a bigger push then Palm did with the original. Any day HP and Sprint will make this announcement.

    Ask him to take a picture for proof.
