    HP is really annoying. HP blogs on August 6th, The Official HP Palm Blog: 100 more reasons to love the HP TouchPad

    "Look for an email with the details next week. You'll want to make sure the email address associated with your TouchPad is an address you currently use so that you'll receive the email we'll be sending with the details. You can check it in the Device Info app, and update it (if necessary) here."

    Now we are at August 14th, 8 days later. Many loyal webOS users like me still don't have a promo code in their palm/webos profile nor do we have an email from them. Yes, my email address is current. Yes, I've checked the online Palm Profile website. No, nothing shows up in either of those places.

    HP, your words are meaningless. You are verging on being untrustworthy and meaningless in the smartphone and tablet space. Your loyal customers are going to switch to your competitors VERY soon.

    Am I ranting, yes, probably so. However, time and time again their words are meaningless and their execution is poor. I've been a webOS fan since the day it was launched. "Waiting" is tolerable. However, I (and many others) get tired of Palm or HP making statements and then they can't execute on those statements.


    EDIT: Just chatted with webOS Mobile Chat support......

    Their answer: "The $50 App Catalog Promotion this is NOT officially launch yet. An Email will be sent out to the "Qualifying Customers". Email will be sent "soon", Please wait for the email before you can avail the Promo."

    My reply: "Your customers are annoyed with HP leaders making statements and not following thu. HP's Jon Zilber said "next week" 8 days ago."

    I don't have my code yet, either. No email has come to my account. I've chatted with reps several times and they are no help. Also, their grasp of the English language sucks. I purchased just after midnight on 1 July, I really hope something didn't go wrong on the HP side.

    thats 10-50 apps you need to buy in 4 months.

    I don't understand why HP is making all these subtle calculations? These things won't save them much money, but do leave an impression of insincere in their offering.

    My suggestion to make customers happy: refund $100. There will be zero unhappiness after that.

    Because everything has to have an end date. You can't leave everything out for open ended to just use for whenever you please. Four months felt like it was a good time to add.

    I don't follow, why not? If hp decided to give away these credit, whats the harm letting users decided when and what they want to buy? Considering the normal life time of such devices, its at most a two year period, what is the harm? Not to mention there may be more and better apps coming out when the platform gains more attractions (hopefully), why push?

    My credit card cash rebate never expires, for example.

    Business reasons. End of discussion. HP doesn't have to provide a reason why something should expire. You can disagree, but there is not a point in going back and forth over it. As a business the decision was made to provide an end date, does it provide you the best possible thing in the world, probably not and you're in your right to believe that, but as a company it wouldn't be the best decision to leave anything open ended. Clip a coupon out of the papers this Sunday and bring me one that doesn't have an end date and allows you to use it as long as you would like. Life has expiration dates we just have to know where the boundaries are and play within them.

    I can see that business thinking alright. If hp believes its good for them in the long run, so be it.

    In my mind, this shouldn't be treated as a coupon, this should be treated as a variaty of refund. Business needs customers and loyalty, I don't think calculating every penny gonna win over loyalties. Too much business thinking may not be the "cool kids" style as hp CEO said it wants to be, and may be a bigger problem in the long run.

    If you feel that you should get a discount for the full price you paid you need to go back to where you bought it from and check their refund policies and see if they all a time period for price changes .. (hope you know what i mean)
    In a world of droid, Pre does it better.

    Shouldn't we treat this world like the Garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

    Almost every gift card has an expiration date. I don't care if it is four months because it won't take that long for me to make a decision on what will amount to 10 apps. I am upset that I have not received the email or the promo code yet and I bought one on release day.
