This is from my sister, names have been changed:

"I just wanted to say that *Billy McFizzlebean* stopped by yesterday (he works at Future Shop) and he pulled out his new HP Touchpad to show me haha. What a coincidence. He said it was so difficult to get one because HP gave employees a deal first before consumers."

So when you went to futureshop to get the Touchpad and they were all out of stock, this is why.

Just a heads up.
