    And why would you count that? I have been in marketing for 25 years but the particular metric you are describing (potential new users who may potentially upgrade) is something I've never come across.

    There is one "upgrade" number we look at: retention. How many users of the product plan on upgrading when given the opportunity.

    Whatever you are parsing up there, is not something useful. Except perhaps in weird arguments like this.

    Chances are that web designers will continue to be "artists" first. It means that if they are going to design a minute to load flash-infested splash page with h.264 videos everywhere, they are going to design the same a minute to load HTML5 splash page with webm videos everywhere.

    You are going to have h.264 hardware accelerated flash. You are probably not going to have hardware accelerated webm. Therefore, HTML5 will be even worse in battery life.

    This pretty much says everything. Massive appeal. "True multitasking be damned".

    But that is severally limited. Depending on the app. And I am not sure why.

    I am not an Apple fan, but let me tell you why the iPad 2 is both hype and great. It's not bad hyping your product up, assuming you can meet that hype created around your product. Nintendo understands this, and so does Apple. Palm understands this too, because the original Pre was hyped yet the hardware could not meet the hype expectations.

    So lets begin. The iPad 2 being thinner is a plus for many because it feels better in the hands. Being lighter will be a plus to people who hold it for long periods of time. Having Garage Band is a plus, and if you have used that software you'd understand why (who care's about the built in speaker -- buy your own if it is not good enough. It's like $10). iMovie on iPad is a dream come true for me. I wish the TouchPad has an app like that.

    These are just some of the reasons why the iPad 2 is both hype and great. Someone else care to expand?

    So tell us, what are you doing today? Searching for more articles about how great webos is? I can sit back and relax and not worry about when the touchpad will come out, cause I'm enjoying mobility now. When the Touchpad is out, if it lives up to it's "hype", I'll order one. (Of course I'll have to hit the gym a little harder, being that I'll be used to the weight of the ipad) Just kidding.

    One other thing, how exactly will HP market homebrew to the webos novices possibly interested in future webOS devices. The only homebrew I want is the Heinekin I buy at the store

    Homebrew is not sales point, it smacks of something lacking.
    'Homebrew smacks of something lacking'?
    I guess to be fair, Jailbreaking would also smack of something lacking.

    Wait,
    does homebrew void your warranty?

    Which is why those line ups to buy the Xoom are so much larger than those for the iPad2.

    This is somewhat true IMO. Before iOS 4.0, and still even today, jailbreak and also Android root allow you to make full use of your devices. There'd be a lot less if manufacturers stopped locking features and functionality down. The case of the PS3 may be slightly different, but I do think Sony is shortsighted. Not all homebrew is piracy related. Some people simply wanted to make full use of the PS3 as a computer. The browser is lacking and installing a real OS helps solve that.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Ok, go market it to the average non geek person when they are looking for the next smart phone to get. How exactly will that TV commercial go? What HP doesn't give you Homebrew will? Pass me a green bottle with a red star please...

    my Ipad2 is totally awesome no way the touchpad can compare......the Apps alone are too much to beat.

    I don't think saying the iPad is a toy is even meant for a reasonable discussion.
