HPs Internal $99 TouchPad Sale More Popular Than Expected, Crushes Web Server

HP’s Internal $99 TouchPad Sale More Popular Than Expected, Crushes Web Server | TechCrunch

People love the $99 TouchPad including HP employees. The TouchPad hit the HPs employee purchasing program yesterday and potential buyers showed up en mass, promptly crashing the servers. Its unclear how many TouchPads were sold, but my HP source didnt manage to snag a cheap TouchPad yet. Instead, he received (and forwarded) an email detailing the problem and warning employees not to bother the call center with their woes. Our site is too slow, he said. HP might still have TouchPads reserved for employees as he hasnt received an email stating theyre sold out.
