(i know i had a nice firefox mod updating/clearing cache on it every 10seconds).

    then staples lets a whole days worth fo orders go thru then announces on the phone that none of them are valid, they ran out the night before.

    HOW the heck are people getting them
    I hear ya. I was sitting on insight all morning and its been timing out for the last 2 hrs so knew it had happened. Im peeved.

    we must all NOT buy on ebay! Once all this settles down, we should set up a thread for those of us who go extra but instead of profiteering, will pass on to other loyal webOS users who do NOT have even 1 (despite last 2 days of trying).

    I do wonder how many of these fire sale TouchPads are out there and actually being used in 1 month, or sitting in someones front room still waiting to be sold on ebay.

    Hopefully this huge uptake will reward the developers that have stuck with webOS, and maybe convince a few more to port over some apps.
    I'm really hoping that that is the silver lining. If we end up having two or three manufacturers throwing resources at WebOS to make it truly shine then I'll soon forget this week's anguish. But at the moment I feel like taking a long walk off a short cliff.

    Lets hope with the new Googarola business, companies like HTC and Samsung will be more open to licensing webOS.

    Does anybody have an idea, whether Play.com is going to reduce the price or not?

    I would be very carefully about getting one in store from argos and hope they will refund the difference - people are saying they are being hard assed about refunding the difference and are telling them that they are excluding it from their 21 day return policy. This could be a misunderstanding at the store level and they might change their minds but don't bank on it.

    I've just been on the phone to Play.com - I was told that they have no intention of dropping the price and that it will remain at the same level.

    I would assume this means that they've sold more before today than they currently have in stock - if they drop the price then they'll get a load of people asking for a refund of the difference (which they are not entitled to), so they lose less by not selling the ones they have in stock than all the trouble dropping the price would bring (a crashed website and phoneline, lots of angry customers wanting a partial refund etc). That's why I would assume Argos haven't dropped the price aswell.

    Yeah if you are going to play this game only do it online so that you are covered in the event that the price does not change and remember - don't open the box!

    That's precisely what I'm thinking. Samsung is just about the only company big enough to take on what HP wants to get rid of, but I'm not interested in HP PCs - if WebOS gets licensend out to Samsung, HTC, LG and others I'll be a very happy man (so long as there's at least one model with a PROPER portrait keyboard)

    Argos are no longer selling the TP. According to Customer Service, Argos made the decision to send them back to HP. All stock is being recalled from Stores & websales are Out Of Stock. They wont be offering Price Match or allowing them to be returned under the 30day policy - The Touchpad is excluded.

    Went to my local staples at lunch time, they were in the middle of taking down the touchpad stand. They had one on display but he said it was running a Demo OS, they said they might be getting an order in on the 30th.... I'm not sure about that though.

    Thinking about it, can you flash the demo OS off it?
