    Seems like a nice write up regarding the newest update to 3.0.2 in webOS.

    With all the "Hub-Bub" regarding the Touch Pad, Thought you'd like to have a good read for a change

    Hope you'all enjoy it

    Good. The webOS team at HP is getting credit when credit is due.

    I suppose the credit is nice, but I can't take this writer seriously. First of all, he claims the original touchpad was unusable. RIGHT! The one I've been using with very few hitches for a month?

    then he claims the touchpad used to change orientation "whenever it wanted to" the accelerometer settings were sensitive, but it didnt randomly rotate. Comments like that confuse readers who can't READ TONE.

    then he felt te urge to praise apples bug fix turn around (2-4 weeks) over HP's. How long did we wait for 3.0.2? FOUR WEEKS! Give me break.

    also, I don't think its profession journalism to use the word assess

    Shouldn't a product be usable from launch?

    i guess its hard for most of us and the world to embrace Webos still. Its understandable though, because this is still a somewhat rebirth for a OS that has all the potential, but is still a bit slow coming out of the gates still. I percieve the next wave of devices next year will be a whole lot smoother, now that webos has the resources to compete. To me the Touchpad was never unusable, and the minor lags and hiccups to me where nothing to galk about at all. This update did take care of those minor things, and to me the touchpad (having had the ipad 1 and 2) is the best OS on the market tablet or smartphone, though its just an opinion its something I stand by. Good Job HP, for making the first big intial launch for webos since the palm pre, a very good step forward.

    Mine was usable out of the box. I was even wondering where people were finding all those issues^^

    yes it should be, and it was. Sure it had occasional performance issues, but to say it was ever UNUSABLE is a huge overstatement, and is just plain wrong.

    I have my share of issues with the TouchPad, but "unusable" it certainly is not and never was.

    While I see that the article has issues with how webOS is portrayed (I agree with the unusable crap), the overall write up does praise webOS and its inprovements.

    Just showing the positive spin with webOS out of the negative we all read lately -- Thats all

    Of course it should be. I bought mine launch day as soon as the store opened. I've been using it continually since then.
