So, you, the OP, and perhaps a handful of others have the same problem, out of the hundreds of thousands of TouchPad out there, and yet people like me, k4ever, and many others posting here are the ones with cheap rose colored glasses?

Her Pad is unmodified, and wasn't even updated to 3.02 until a couple of days ago (when I realized she was still on 3.0). Her Pad had none of the problems that you claim are endemic to the TouchPad. Neither did my 32GB.
But then, I suppose we've both got cheap rose colored glasses, since the observations of a few count more than the real-world experiences of thousands to you.
Oh, by the way, I am most likely going to keep my full price TouchPad because I am happy with it. IF I happen to get my hands on a firewall 32GB replacement, I may return the current one, but as it turns out I'm also looking for TouchPads for my family.
