    +1000. I like the thread title

    Keep the positive spirit coming! No matter what will happen to WebOS, we need to enjoy our TouchPad till the end.

    Two 32G. 3rd 3G is going to the best friend's famaly as a gift.

    iPad usage almost 0%, laptop usage =10%, TP usage =90%.

    Best moment: using LibreOffice editing Microsoft documents (word, excel, power point) in a card mode during flight on business trips, and iPad users sitting around were curious about what the heck I was using. For those who don't know, LibreOffice is as good, if not better, as Ms office.

    In card mode I can switch back and forth between Ubuntu and webos just like you swipe different cards on tp.
    Did you lose any of the formatting on those MSFT docs--ie italics, bold, even change of font?
    I found I was able to open some of the MSFT docs sent to me without stripping the formatting, this is making me cautious to use this for business purposes.

    I unknowingly slingshot or swipe up my open apps on iPhone, thinking they'd close. Since I have owned the tablet, I find pressing the iPhone home button a nuisance now! Who's with me?!

    iOS is extremely elegant and beautiful, now with folders and management, but so is WebOS, with gestures, flash, and elegant icons and stock apps like mail, chat, and NOTIFICATIONS, etc.

    Albeit, HP touchpad is heavier, iPad 2 DOES float!

    I said it long ago and I say it again, webos/touchpad, not ios/iphone/ipad/ipod, not android/whatever, is the only os/pad that gives user COMPLETE touch experience. Once you turn tp on, you don't have to press any physical button to manage your use. Other pads/pods/phones/drois would require the use of home button or something to close an app.

    And yes, I have the same habit of swiping and slingshoting my ipad, only realize that it ain't no touchpad...

    My poor ipad is sitting there collecting dust now.

    +10000 I love a lot of the features the tp has... I think it is one of the most underhyped/unappreciated gadgets around. Things I thought sounded like gimmicks, like Synergy, have turned out to be awesome features. If HP had just spent all it's ad dollars hyping that it would have been a hit. I really didn't understand it until I saw it in action.

    There are only one or two android features I find myself missing. I miss speech to text. I didn't realize how much I used that until I go the tp. And darn it why doesn't this keyboard have any arrow keys? Or at least a shift option for them.

    Other than that this is a great product. It's too bad HP didn't market this aggressively.

    4 months with my TouchPad and 1 month with my PRE 3, love using both of them, awesome devices and an awesome OS. It's a pity that many people take these so called tech sites as the gospel truth and never have experienced webOS for themselves. Sitting in a Holiday Inn in NoCal right now typing away on my Touchpad and watching ESPN.

    Just curious, is the crack happened because we hold the TP at speakers side?

    Mine, since day 1 I put on the HP Folio case and I always afraid to hold TP at speakers side, due to I read that crack on TP speakers is common problem.

    No, I did not lose any space. One thing you want to check is the /media/internal/.palm
    for very large files (more than 1 gig each). If you see quite a few of those, some of them are the ones causing the lost. Determine which ones are the culprit (only you can tell because I don't know what you have been installing). Caution, removing any files here by mistake may cause issues.

    If you determined the file causing the space lost, use internalz to delete that file(s).

    I actually just sold my iPad because I am finding the Touchpad so useful. I have installed all the recommended patches and made the logging changes. And overclocking makes it quite fast. An HP case and a Boxwave screen protector and I am happy as a pig in mud. I am debating getting the touchstone now. I think if there was an hd app for evernote, it would be just about perfect for me.

    I think the crack is mainly due to the folio case holding it too tight and the case is too thin around the speakers and the case material is not elastic or strong enough (of course it's a design issue). My 1st 32g in folio developed the crack, but the 32g in a different style case did not. I am not going to put the 2nd 32g in folio case although I bought one for it. I am waiting to buy a flexible, folio-like case for the 2nd 32g.

    That's the most sensible theory I've seen. I don't have cracks on mine and rarely hold in in a way that would put pressure on the case. I typically use the case stand or other method of propping the touchpad. The touchpad is relatively heavy, at least compared to our iPad so if the case material is thin as well it makes sense that it would be easy to crack the case with pressure from holding the touchpad.

    When I can afford a laptop, I'll be looking into it.

    I'm super happy with my Touchpad too!

    Android just doesn't feel the same after spending a lot of time with webOS. Cards just feel so natural and really make the device satisfying to use.

    Stuff I've been doing:
    - Watching movies with KalemSoft Media Player
    - Reading the newspaper daily with the browser - I've been nothing but satisfied with Flash on the Touchpad too. Websites "just work".
    - checking twitter with Spaz HD
    - email in bed
    - playing with and developing SodaSynth HD

    It's a shame the Pre3 isn't more widely available. After getting a Touchpad, it absolutely convinced me that the Pre3 should be my next phone instead of an Android.

    Every "so called" tech site have always praised WebOS but the implementation is what killed it with the tech sites. No they didn't follow the "getting started" thread to patch, kill the logging, and increase the clock speed but they did give proper reviews of the product as it came out of the box. Tech sites don't review the phones after they are rooted and running CM7. The reviews were very fair and from reading them I don't see any issues, especially how I remembered how underwhelmed I was when I first played with it before I had done all the tweaks. HP dropped the ball and so did Palm.

    Palm hyped up the Pre and Pre 2 only to come out way past the estimated arrival and on cheap hardware. Don't blame the tech sites, blame HP and Palm for not living up to the potential of the OS.
