    I did this at a Borders once, except it was switching the positions of George Bush's "Decision Points" with Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight".
    I didn't get caught, but I ****ed off my Republican girlfriend.
    So doing this next time I walk into an electronics store, though. A while back I was also thinking about making a PNG with the text 'NOT COMPENSATING FOR ANYTHING' and setting it to the wallpaper on all the Veers in AT&T stores, but that might be over the line.

    There needs to be more pics in this thread!

    I never thought of taking a pic but I've also set the TouchPad page as the home page and adding a few notes in Pages and the like about the TouchPad superiority.

    Gotta post some vids - taken with a Pre/Veer - of the reaction of the reps at the Apple store. Post 'em on YouTube!

    I heart this thread!

    It is really to bad that there isn't WiFi at Best Buy. Kinda strange really.

    Every time I look at the Veer I pull up the 'Gestures Tutorial' so that it is ready to go for people that haven't used webOS before.

    I actually did this at my BestBuy and Apple Store a couple weeks back! Except, I didn't stop at the iPads. I put hpwebos.com up on all the iPads, Android tablets, ereaders, laptops, etc. Basically, if it could display a webpage, it had hpwebos.com up.

    I absolutely LOVE IT...

    Somewhat like what Apple fans who work for Best Buy do to the HP displays. Either way, keep up the great work! Sorli...

    Haha, I love this. I recently did this in the UK- walked into various different shops to look at tablets (I was genuinely interested at other tablets) and I left them all on either PreCentral.net or that HP webpage.
    I did then think this could back fire, as some people might see the TouchPad page on the tablet and believe they are actually playing with one... Good to see I'm not alone in this Gorilla Warfare though :P

    I guess Apple has to do something to make people look at the iPad.

    I did my job today at a Best Buy in the Big D!

    Went to play with Palm Pre 2 at local Vzn store when they first came out. Had to find it myself (no help from staff) and it was dead. Put my Pre Plus batt in it temporarily and had a hard time because they put security device on the touchscreen. Was able to enter and save bookmark for Precentral, but had to switch-out the battery when I left.

    Today while there it was charged and that bookmark was first one visible! Also, they moved the security device so you could actually use the device. However, it soon went to low battery warning.
    "Everybody Palm!"

    Palm III/IIIC, Palm Vx, Verizon: Treo 650, Centro, Pre+.
    Leo killed my future Pre 3 & Opal, dagnabitt!
    Should I buy a Handspring Visor instead?
    Got a Pre2! "It eats iPhones for Breakfast"!

    Funny thing is as soon as I was setting things up. A bestbuy rep came over and asked if I had any questions. I told him I know all I need to know about the ipad2,thank you.....

    While I was there I was kinda happy to see this too.

    I did it today at BB. All I could do was open Safari and the HP website. Wasn't sure how to wallpaper it, or make it the default home page.

    Find the Settings icon (it has gears on it) or swipe right to left until a keyboard and textbox appear and type settings then tap the listed "Settings" with the gear icon. Scroll through and you'll eventually find a "Wallpaper" option.

    As for the "home page" thing. The best you could do would be to hide the Safari icon in a folder somewhere on a launcher page several swipes back. Then replace it with a Home Screen icon link that uses the Safari icon as its image but automatically opens up the TouchPad page.

    So, has anyone gotten kicked out of a store yet?

    ...Just hope I don't find myself with a Apple (non)Genius looking over my solder asking what I am doing
    If someone asks what you are doing, just tell the truth, you improving the iPad!
