HP TouchPad and WebOS... And some euros too...

I was excited. Wanted to have a tablet since the iPad one days, but also I was not willing to pay 500 dollars... and I'm no more an Apple guy: I still think some of their products are incredible, but their policy is a thing I'm not willing to accept any more.

This year will see some changes (finally, I say!!) and it is a bit sad. The future is bright and the past has been. So what I am writing of? Nothing... and nobody.
