The TouchPad might have had a very short life span but the entire TouchPad saga has been thoroughly interesting. In fact, it provided us some thing to cheer about from the usual tablet story of the iPad leading in every possible manner while the rest to play a catch up game.
In the latest twist to the TouchPad story, there is a lawsuit also involved. It goes like this: HP had outsourced the process of arranging refund to those customers who had purchased the TouchPad before the price was brought down to $99 and $149 for 16 and 32 Gb versions of the tablet respectively. For this HP had hired a German Company named Grenova Services GmbH. The latter in turned created a furore when they began asking customers for their bank account details. The customers on their part thought this might be the work of some scam master as they had not been informed by HP or any other source that Grenova Services GmbH is the company that HP has entrusted with to deal with the refunds. The effect had been quite derogatory on HP itself.
Even though the lawsuit has been dropped but it yet leaves a blemish on HP for not having thoroughly checked out the credentials of the firm before filing in the lawsuit. It surely brings to light the lack of communication between different HP partners.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
