    I was about to pack up my TouchPad and send it back because of wifi problems and no update out, but we will see if this update fixes my issues. Hopefully it will be out soon now.

    Don't count today out
    3PM Pacific time = 11PM in the UK (I think)

    Pipe down and lay off of them. They are communicating and thats good news. If theres some reason 3:00pm doesnt work out I'd like to think they are comfortable telling us so!
    I'm not sure the 3:00 pm target was tweeted by Richard. That information infact was provided by 'MateoSolo' in this thread and his source, although an HP contact, is not Richard I think.

    I'm not so sure. 3PM Pacific time is 11pm GMT

    But we are currently in British Summer Time, which is an hour later.

    So it could be 12.00am

    (I must admit to being slightly confused though )

    I'm glad they are testing before release. Having the OTA Update fail would be the worst possible outcome. Mom always said 'if you don't have time to do it right, you certainly don't have time to do it twice!'

    the update will get here when its ready and actually gets here. Your life isnt over because of some delay that HP is not entitled to share with the public. Go outside enjoy life and the earth. Maybe you'll be a bit happier in life with some vitamin d
    Look, I like the whining as much as you do. But there is an entitlement: I bought an HP product that HP said it would support frequently and timely. That expectation is brought on by the company. That is not a free-loading entitlement, that's now a justified consumer expectation. If you get a cold latte, you expect the barista to make you a new one, right? It wasn't up to spec, and you assume when you buy your cup of joe, it will meet a minimal set of expectations.

    Likewise, we plunked down some serious cash on an HP product. I'm fairly certain that there is a majority here who would like nothing more for HP to wildly succeed with webOS. We buy webOS products. We proselytize. We make apps for it. We make patches - for free - make tools - for free - etc. etc. etc.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with us being upset for a promise not kept, and, in view of a promise they can't keep, communication that says, at the least, that it's delayed for x number of days.

    Face it, Palm had a terrible history with communication and the webOS community when it came to expectations. They engineered expectations, and didn't meet them. HP can control this - they have many outlets of communication, even just tweeting, and I am sure with the editors of sites like precentral and webosroundup. Pick up the phone, shoot an email, tweet. How hard can it be? Just don't leave us in the dark. Don't be Palm. Be HP.

    Yes, my life will go on just fine without a timely update. But don't raise my expectations as your customer, and not keep them. At least not without warning.

    Expressing frustration about an HP-engineered frustration is not unjustified. Annoying to read, maybe, but no reason to belittle those who are really frustrated - because they want webOS to be the success it SHOULD be, more than anyone.

    And now, I look forward to the update and I am grateful to the HP employees who are making it possible. Cheers!

    The fact of the matter is the update was as Richard stated slated to go out early this morning, however it didn't turn out to be possible for other reasons which I'm not going to go into.

    The whole point is what is to be expected? Palm HP gets backlash when we don't communicate things, but we get the same backlash when we do communicate. This has given me serious thought into never going into Public Relations...
    I think you are misunderstanding the cause of people's anxiety. After the fact that HP had not been able to meet the publicly declared schedule of "by month end", communicating that the update will finally be released the morning of August 1st and then not meeting that schedule also does serve to rub it in a bit and is totally unexpected, but I still think it is understandable, for there could be umpteen number of reasons for the delay. But, what is not understandable, is why there has not been further communication to let people know that there is a delay and what the new targeted schedule is. Please remember, communication is always an ongoing process. I am sure, that if HP had communicated that due to unforseen circumstances the update has been further delayed by a few hrs or days or whatever, only the most unreasonable and there will always be some of those, persons would have *****ed and moaned.

    "Well, I don't know, the update didn't come, and no idea on the Pre 3 yet." I've had to tow that line for months with people who are/were truly becoming webOS fans. Unfortunately, the lack of credibility that continues on has cause several casualties to our user base. My best friend who ditched his iPhone for an AT&T Pre+ last year & claimed "This is the best phone I've ever owned." will be switching to Android this week. He doesn't want to, but for business needs to upgrade & has no other option since the Pre 3 has been mum for so long.

    Personally, I'm here & not going anywhere anytime soon b/c I love it so much. Certainly some of you can understand what it's like to sell the fringe on a product that's not so mainstream yet? Bad PRPRPR = $Nearly$ $impossible$ $sale$. $I$ $can$'$t$ $wait$ $to$ $have$ $one$ $of$ $my$ $friends$ $or$ $family$ $email$ $me$ $tonight$ $when$ $Gizmodo$ $posts$ $a$ $story$ $slamming$ $the$ $lack$ $of$ $an$ $update$.

    Sorry, I write too much...but for me at least, this was never about the update, but the overall lack of communication, follow through, and accountability.

    Cheers all, hope it's a good evening!

    At the end of the day, we all love webOS, we all love the fact it's progressing, we all love the fact there's a shiny new update on the horizon made by some very talented guys back in "Palm".

    If HP just communicated more there'd be 50% less whining

    Right, where the F5 button...

    Personally, I'll take the update when it's ready and no sooner. I have no complaints with my TouchPad except I can't create a Skype account (not a big deal since I never used it prior).
