    Ok, I overclocked and applied all those patches at the Touchpad Plus site, but I was curious. If I gave this away to a non-techie, would this cause any problems for them down the road? If WebOS were to release a new upgrade to the OS, might this cause problems for them? I wouldn't think so, but just wanted to ask.


    Already know Overclocking may cause warranty problems per the advisory.

    Well if you're giving it to a friend or family member just tell them to either let you know when there's an update so you'll be ready if something goes wrong or do the update for them.

    I'd definitely give them the overclocked and patched system just because it works better. I would give them the overclocked one which is supported in Preware and not one of the testing ones.

    As a former tech support person, I've made it rule not to be tech support for friends and family. Just like a garbage man, it's not polite to invite him to your party then select him to dispose of the trash just because he does that for a living. Having said that, I probably won't be around to support the Touchpad once gifted.

    What a perfect way to put why I don't want to fix your computer constantly into perspective for someone else.

    chi--as long as you did the stable over clock: uberkernel at 1.5GHz, it shouldn't cause any problems and it should work fine for the OTA updates. If they do have problems which they think are associated w/the over clocking, they can easily remove it.

    Thoughtful gift.

    But anyone can take out the trash... you may be the only person who can do their tech support (short of paying someone).

    The only person who asks me to do tech support for them is my grandmother, and I couldn't imagine refusing her heh.
