    I noticed that my Touchpad didn't perform automatic backups in the last week.
    When I forced a backup, it just kept showing me "Preparing..." and the rotating
    icon.

    Sometimes it will start the back up but stop after just 5 seconds... then display
    "Backup failed" on the bottom.

    I decided to play it safe and completely shutdown my Touchpad and restart it
    several times. That made no difference. Backup still cannot be done. Just
    in case it was a problem with my home WiFi network, I tried it at my office
    network and also at the local library. Still nothing....

    It shows my last backup date/time as November 28, 2011 17:09.

    I called HP webOS support and after 30 minutes, two techs couldn't figure
    out why backups failed. I was told to ship my Touchpad back for repairs.
    It seems illogical... I know my Touchpad is performing flawlessly and the
    backup failure must be HP's problem, no?

    you mean this was front page story on the newspaper... which newspaper was it?

    I have now confirmed that there is nothing wrong with my Touchpad. My co-worker's
    Touchpad is also having the same issue when trying to force backups.

    The HP App Catalog and the Palm Profile servers can no longer be reached.

    The @palm and @webOSdev twitter accounts no longer respond. The developer forums are a barren wasteland.

    Some people take the easy way out, and simply move to another platform.

    Others learn how to survive, using ... The webOS Survival Kit
