Wow.... If you really think that major companies like HP will take advantage of a little show that only tech nerds like us watch to actually do any kind of major releases? That is exactly how to follow their foot steps back in 2009 by have the worst marketing strategy ever. One of the first things you gota learn about marketing is how to establish a professional name and be able to get the word out to everyone that the 'new cool thing is out'.

They come to talk about their products and explain what they are doing, what they plan, and let loose a little information that will greatly help or entice customers.
Ruby sat down with Josh and talked about what they planned on doing and rolling out that year. A few of the important things he said, that I really wanted to tell us, were; if the Veer is getting Touch-To-Share and clear up this WebOS on Windows stuff. Which he did, very well. Not only that but he 'let loose' a few more details and one of which I am excited for, iTunes support coming back!! He also talked up his devices and showed us how the Veer got its name and more clearly stated what market they were targeting. But something I really liked about this time is that he joked around like bringing that ink jet cart! lol
If you actually read all of this thanks and I would love to here anyone else's input on my points! Thanks!
