If they know the stock is going to instantly sell then why won't they sell it?

He means they are hinting that they will all be sold internally to staff.. big surprise there.

RexHavoc: Just heard from Ingram. Apparently there are no units left to go around to any of the resellers so we have missed out as has everyone else. So much for our allocation of 10 Frown

Yeah. When I ring back again to check the current status, I'll try to appeal to his sense of decency (stop laughing; it may work). I do have a couple of other purchases I need to make, so I may be able to use that to sweeten the deal and get them to reserve one for a loyal customer. 

Dreams are free, right? :-)

You might be better of calling the head office, or at least using that as a threat. I'm fairly certain that they would not be happy with staff putting themselves above customers.

Where's the proof though? He didn't say that was going to happen, but that was certainly the inference I got from the conversation.

I'm also a believer in catching more flies with honey than vinegar.

If I were JB, id actually offer it to the staff first. I see this as the right thing to do for a company to do for its employees.
 Now if there was some awesome deal advertised on the front page of there mailer that the staff all bought up, then I'd be pissed.

Sing to the tune of Dire Straits' 'I want my MTV'

I want my HP Touchpad...
Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You play the Need for Speed on the Touchpad, see

That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Touchpad for almost nothin' and your gigs for free

Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them HP guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a little drop in your stocks
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We gotta install Angry Birds HD free
Custom app deliveries
We gotta move these WebOs bricks
We gotta move these touchpads quickly

That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Touchpad for almost nothin' and your gigs for free

Gutted I missed out. I really wanted to get one for my dog, as he really deserves it. He has worked really hard this year. I don't know maybe if I go round all the shops and websites and let them know it was for my dog maybe someone will feel sorry for me.
