Are Some Members Of This site Predisposed To Hating The TouchPad?
Did anyone else notice that there are a number of people on this site who were very anti TouchPad before it came out...then they went and tried it and low and behold they hated it?????????
These people likely aren't trolls, but they are just very turned off for on reason or another....Does anyone else see this besides me?
Now I'm not saying it as a criticism of people, however even the best of us sometimes without realizing it are predisposed to liking or disliking something...Just yesterday someone asked me on this very site, if I only look for the positive reviews....it's likely that I am without realizing it.....not just b/c I have been a happy loyal Palm fan for over 10 years....but also b/c when the Pre came out, there were a number of people so unhappy that they bad mouthed the Pre so, that I know a number of people, (actual people, not online acquaintances), who were scared off from the Pre and webOS completely, due to chatter in these forums. It's likely without realizing it I'm trying to compensate for what happened to the Pre....
Now I had to stay on the sidelines b/c I got my Centro with a 2 year contract that started a few months before the Pre came out...so I have never even tied webOS.
I am so looking forward to getting a Pre3, which is what I have decided on since my contract expired the middle of last Oct. I decided when Palm was originally put up for sale, that I would wait for a smartphone that wasn't rushed out when Palm was so tight on funds...
My question is did these people ever have an open mind about the TouchPad?
