Well, so far this is a non-event. I was SO looking forward to getting my TouchPad, and now that I have it, I’m finding that getting apps for it is somewhat problematical. Either they don’t have a way to download them, or I can not find them in the AppsCatalog. Come on folks, please get your ‘stuff’ in one stack! Right now, I’m trying to upgrade my OS, for the THIRD time. It has failed the first two, and when I click on the link for instructions on what to do in this situation, it can’t find the page! HP, I have been a long-time loyal customer. I currently own 3 HP computers and I’m on HP printers number 8 and 9! I expect a little loyalty BACK. It works both ways, you know.
