CrunchPad Joins The DeadPool

CrunchPad Is Dead
Techcrunch (Micheal Arrington) has informed us that the much awaited CrunchPad, tablet computer is dead. It was slated to have been demoed on November 20th. I was actually waiting for it, with cash in my hand. Because one thing I like the concept and secondly, it was a collective bay area effort, where I live.
I even defended Arrington and the team that the crunchpad was vaporware, only last week. We needed the pad for a project that is under development at the moment. It is a sad tale of greed, jealousy and miscommunication that led to the following from one of the development team, but be aware, there is always, two sides to the coin.

We still acknowledge that Arrington and TechCrunch bring some value to your business endeavor…If he agrees to our terms, we would have Arrington assume the role of visionary/evangelist/marketing head and Fusion Garage would acquire the rights to use the Crunchpad brand and name. Personally, I don’t think the name is all that important but you seem to be somewhat attached to the name
said an email Arrington got from Chandra Rathakrishnan of fusiongarage. Well the crunchpad has gone to the deadpool but there might be a bunch of lawsuits.
