    Not my words, but Surur's (ex of this parish).

    Just a *little* OTT perhaps??

    (Mods, please move if you feel this should be elsewhere - I have no idea where it should be, but thought it should be here somewhere!)

    It shows just how out-of-touch the HP leadership really is.

    It's certainly true that *anyone* who takes an internet poll seriously if deluded! But it seems to be a day for weird quotations from mobile phone company execs...

    Seriously. They should have instead thrown up words on the screen like "magical" "revolutionary" "changes everything".

    Geez, where did they get their marketing team from???

    I think it's funny that HP is immediately accused of "cheating", yet WebOS has consistently won polls such as this, long before HP bought Palm and WebOS.

    I was interested in this story ... until I found out the source.

    The headline is needlessly inflammatory and misrepresents the truth. webOS fans might've "cheated," but HP didn't. Unless corporations are suddenly responsible for the actions of their fans.

    Also, it's pretty obvious this guy has an axe to grind. He seems to be the worst example of a propeller-male.

    Yeah, hard to think that article was fair and balanced. Could be we cheated, but I don't think "Anonymous" gave him any proof other than "how could my l337 android lose?"

    Totally unfair to put a poll on the web that can be accessed by web OS.

    The poll, itself, is embarrassing. Referencing it as proof of how well your platform is doing, even more so.

    I'd have to say, if the poll is embarrassing, and the results embarrasing, then the phans that stomp their feet and yell and scream that it's a fraud, HP cheated, and should be embarrassed - especially when they're doing it on a forum for HP devices - well, that's gotta be at least a little embarrassing, wouldn't you agree??

    If you can take a few minutes away from telling us how awful our devices are, of course...

    Trust me, if I took any of this seriously, I would be a basket-case. Amazing how worked up people get over this stuff. It is like investing all your hope in a sports team. Pick a side, cheer until you're hoarse, and go on about your day if they lose.

    newsflash here people:

    Execs, marketing peeps, etc will use almost ANY positive external source to boast on their products.

    No harm, no foul, move on, nothing to see here.
    I see pandas.

    If Google or Apple used this at a press conference to try to justify the like of their OS you guys would be screaming.

    This forum is described in one phrase: "that's different."

    They better call whine-won-won and dial themselves up a whambulance lol.
