    at minimum it should have been in waves because some people just don't have the opportunity to get the info at that specific time. I feel cheated in some form.

    Just want to add, you may not like it but its NOT, NOT, NOT a legal issue. In fact I DARE you to attempt to sue on that basis or even better create a class action. I would love to hear from you and how it turns out. I repeat its NOT a legal issue whether you like the limiting of quanities or not. Further more to even attempt to sue you would have to prove damages or inconvenience it caused you but not being able to participate in the promotion. Again looking forward to that injunction LOL

    it is the coupon that is limited. Like saying the first 50 people through the door on black friday get an extra discount, or the first 10,000 fans into the ball park get a free coke.

    now, I will clean up this thread one time so let this be the warning to all. Name calling and attacking other members is a violation of forum rules. So is arguing and trolling.

    thank you

    Cantaffordit - well said.

    I agree with you 10000000% when you explained it as a Black Friday-type event.

    There are a ton of other applications out there that are free. The ones that they gave away are nothing compared to the ones you get with Preware. Just install that, sit back and watch the movie instead of complaining about not getting something because you were later than everyone else.

    Wow, the drama! LMAO!
    I managed to grab all but one of the free apps and I have to say that for me just getting the Sparkle HD made it worth it. Love that one. I am sorry for those of you who didn't catch the news about this but there will be other apps, perhaps even better apps. Just be glad you managed to snag yourself a TP in the first place! I have a list of customers who I am to notify if/when I see anyplace that has them in stock. No one is holding their breath though--hopefully!

    Play nice!

    More codes ARE being generated.

    Those of us that missed out, WILL get another shot at those free apps.

    So says WebOS Roundup.
    We just got confirmation that the codes have indeed run out for now, BUT they are generating more and will be available soon.

    Toasters, I heard a rumor that HP is going to be including in the next patch a mini-kernel that will auto-detect if you were one that complained that the previous codes ran out and will do a factory reset on your touchpad and create a 24 digit alphanumeric password that you have to guess before you are allowed back onto it. I also heard that HP will not help you crack said password. Have you heard that rumor too? :P

    I'd give it a little more weight than a rumor.

    Still, worst case, we missed out on a few free apps.

    Whadd ya get for nothin'?

    I am glad to see HP supporting webOS in this way. I didn't get any of the free apps but I also didn't win the free concert tix they were giving away on the radio the other day. you win some, you lose some.

    I saw the posting but didn't realize there was a code limit. Figured I could come back AMD redeem any time before the Aug 31 deadline. Boy was that a mistake! They should have made the first come first serve aspect clearer.

    did you read above where it says "more codes are being generated"?

    Can we confirm that the 'more codes are being generated' are for the six apps previously mentioned or are the new codes going to be for the six NEW apps they plan to give for free early September?

    I'm glad to hear they are making more codes, I was sorry to have missed out as I just got my TP today. Thanks for the update.
    The value of knowledge is not in its possession, but in its use.

    The following may be of interest:

    so by stating in the advertisement "while supplies last" they did not disclose a limitation of quanity?

    Sorry, I'm not allowed to answer on the forum. I'll PM you.

    I know some of you are frustrated but you guys are talking about legal technicalities? I'm saddened - HP has been offered this up when they didn't need to. Way to discourage future giveaways... With more codes coming its a non issue but I just wanted to pop that in.
    Palm V → TX → Centro → HTC Legend → TouchPad/Pre 3(UK) → HTC One X → Nexus 4/iPad Mini → Pre 3/TouchPad Go

    Man, I hope so. I was actually looking into buying the Audubon birding app, but if this could save me $15, then sign me up!
