    They are giving free Touchpad, but only to people who don't care (the people at some film festival, instead of developers).

    RIM was doing the same thing. Handing out free PlayBooks like candy on fancy launch events to so-called 'VIPs' while developers who earned one through the developer program were still waiting for theirs. A friend of mine is STILL waiting for his.

    No idea why companies think giving out free stuff to spoiled rich 'VIPs' is a good idea. Boggles the mind. Those people really don't give a flying you-know-what.

    Google I/O attendees also are paying 450-550 dollars to attend (150 for "academia", and limited free press passes). Still a good deal for a netbook, and a tablet, but not free.

    Google I/O 2011
    The cost of all three items covers the cost of admission plus some. So however you want to slice it, they got in free, they got a free access point, bottom line they got some cool free stuff.

    I attended I/O and I'm not a rich VIP-type. A good chunk of those that do attend are normal developer-type people there by way of their company or there for personal growth.
