Woot Offers TouchPad Buyers Star Wars Jokes And Partial Refund
Before the TouchPad dove head first into the bargain bin, HP tried a little pricing experiment. Early in August, they dropped the TouchPad's price by $50, and very shortly after, the discount was bumped up to $100. It was a sweet deal, but in retrospect, some buyers may not be too happy with pulling the trigger when they did. Woot sold the TouchPad for $379, but they reportedly feel like "scruffy nerf herders" about it and are offering buyers a $100 partial credit and an email laden with Star Wars jokes.
