    if you turn your touchpad horizontally and speakers are on top. And vol buttons on bottom. You can drag your card from its top to the bottom of the screen. You will hear sling shot crank up and a wheee! As you release card it will be launched. Kind of like an angry bird. Get it? Easter egg > angry birds > birds lay eggs. Hehe

    Just found this on my touchpad, if you are in card view, take an app and slide it to the bottom of the screen and let you finger slide off the screen, it will fling the app off the top of the screen and make angry birds sound effects!

    Try it out for yourself!

    I don't know if it is a requirement to have angrybirds installed or not though!

    Nope, you don't need Angry Birds installed for it. The Easter Egg is packaged in webOS. Pretty funny!

    Ya, I was very surprised by it, and then surprised that no one had mentioned it anywhere!

    Only works if the TP is upside down in landscape mode IIRC.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Yep - it was one of the news item posts early in the month. The TPad has to be in landscape position with the speakers facing up for this to happen.

    Pretty funny... only thing missing is crashing noise. lol

    I had to show the HP "rep" how to do this at frys a few weeks back. I think she was just a frys employee in an HP polo, clearly wasnt a seasoned HP rep but had received some training, might have been a temp too since this was on a saturday.

    ok I wasn't going crazy I heard it once, and couldn't figure it out. Thought it was some sort of bug or something!
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    Sorry if this is a repost. Searched and didn't find. In any case, I love this new "feature" I was unaware of.



    Enjoy if you didn't already know about it.

    It a new gesture to completely close an app.

    Well, I vaguely remember HardBeatz saying something to that extent...
    lol

    1) Press Power button and Center button at the same time and release to take a snapshot of your Touchpad screen [ works like PrintScreen in Windows]. File is auto saved under your /photos/screencaptures/

    2)Minimize an app in landscape [ horizontal ] position , drag it down and release it to close. You'll hear 'whee' from angrybirds.

    Please post more if you find them..
    the root.

    try turning your TP upside down and then doing it... you'll only get the "weee" sound when the speakers are positioned at the top
