    hp e-all-in-one printers also still not featuring WebOs.

    Missing in action – the comedy gold of hp’s strategy officer jumping ship. [url<][/url<] I hope there's a TR contest in an hp dead pool. It'd make a great Friday night discussion topic. Edited because of apostrophe failures.

      The question in my mind is how much of HP’s recent strategy shenanigans were his ideas, and now he’s being forced out; or if he’s quitting because he’s sick of the board constantly overruling him.

      But even if he was kept completely out of the loop on all of the big decisions this year, I can’t imagine anyone wanting to hire HP’s chief strategy officer after a year like this. More like Chief Tragedy Officer! Oh-HO! *slaps knee*

    “OCC’s Evercool HPL-815 and Transformer 3 review”

    Yeah, I thought the third movie was actually pretty darned good. Of course, pretty much anything is better than the disaster that was the second movie.

    Oh these are CPU fans? Right, never mind.

      Yet to see any of the movies. They seemed kind of cheesy.

        Because the cartoon wasn’t.

          The +1 I gave you assumes you’re being sarcastic. Don’t disappoint me!

    NewEgg is selling Dell U2410s now? When did that start?

    Also: given the perpetual Lenovo Edge coupons, has anybody ever accidentally paid full list price for one?

    Hard-drive prices are already rising. The Samsung HD103SJ that I bought last week for $60 is up to $77ΒΌ, for example.

      I’ve noticed that within the last 3-4 days, the Samsung HD204UI drives have gone from $80 (free shipping), to $110 (with $7-8 shipping), so that’s what, about 47-48% jump. I was holding off, trying to catch them at $70 (happened once during the back to school deals, but I didn’t bite). Now with the current circumstances, I’ve basically shot myself in the foot.

      Good God it’s bad. I just bought a WD Green 2 TB drive from Newegg for $70 a few weeks ago – that same drive is now $120.
