    Haha. Just saw a commercial for the Touchpad on TNT with Manny Pacquaint advertising it for $399.

    Why is HP wasting money by continuing these commercials? At $99 advertising is probably not necessary is sell their remaining inventory lol

    They were already in the programming on the networks and price doesn't matter at this point, A commercial saying WEBOS is all they care about. They are still making webos and they will still need to advertise webos in some way but probably not as much as device manufacturers and carriers will do their best to promote the phones and tablets.

    Generally television advertising isn't purchased per single commercial (except in special cases like sporting events and highly rated shows). Most commercials, especially on cable, are purchased as packages, where you buy say a week's run of a commercial in various time slots. These were probably all slated to run already before last week's announcement.

    Of course, most major advertisers would quickly do a recut of the commercial and get it to the network before it runs in cases like this. I guess it shows how little HP cares about this product now that they don't even bother.

    They already paid for the media, no reason to pull them.
