Got a fancy HP TouchPad today...very early Christmas gift.   HP still leaves a sour taste, but the price was right.

Oddity - was going to post this in the random thread, but for some reason it causes the touchpad to crash when I access the last page of that thread (though not other threads, or even other websites so far). Thinking

Dunno. Tried the same thread twice, no luck. Might be that I need a software update, though I havent tried that yet as i've heard the servers are crazy busy. That and at a friends house with flakey slow internet connection.

Only slightly cranky

Upgrades on flakey connections can do bad things.  Very bad things.  Doh

Enjoy the new Pinky Pad. Wink

New name...discontinued name actually. If you're lucky enough to find one in stock, it's dirt cheap ($99 vs $500 for an iPad) and seems to work pretty well so far.  Actually finding one is another story...the person that got it for me camped in front of Best Buy, where her and husband were lucky enough to score two of the four they had available.

touchpad browser seems to do odd things with cookies...had to reset cookies and browser cache in order to log in here today, and need to keep session id in url, otherwise it loses the session. Thinking quirky. lol

looks like restarting fixed the quirkiness. I see an alternate browser in their app store for 2.99. Maybe when I get back to Chicago...not about to enter cc info on an open hotel WiFi connection.

I think you can get Firefox for Android if that helps.  Should still be free.  Thinking
