Tragic news from Hewlett Packard headquarters, the HP touchpad will be discontinued along with its WebOS system. Oh man and I just linked my Zune and Palm Pre to my touchpad?! Son of a… every freaking time. HP CEO Leo Apothek said “it wasn’t gaining traction thanks to the popularity of the Apple iPad.” When asked for comment on this story Steve Jobs was quoted as saying, “muhaaahhhahahhhahhaaa… HP bahaha… chumps!” and then he flew off on his hoverboard to play robot golf with James Cameron and a Cyborg Ryan Seacrest. It is really a shame because the HP touchpad had some amazing features like it’s extensive APP store with almost 300 APPS as compared to the 90,000 APPS the iPad has to offer, I mean who needs all those apps anyhow! RIP Touchpad you’ll be missed, by the 8 people who stood in line at Best Buy to purchase you.
The TLC network has announced that Kate Gosselin’s show “Kate +8” has been canceled after 150 episodes. In its place, they are picking up an equally exploitative series called “Casey -1”. I guess this new show has way less child labor violations. TLC didn’t state why they officially canceled the show but my theory is that when they took Jon out of the show’s title, it sounded way too much like a dirty website. Kate plus… you get it. Don’t worry though; word has it that they’re planning specials for people to catch up on Kate and the kid’s lives. The first one is on an episode of “Intervention” where they have to sit Kate down and tell her nobody cares anymore.
