CrunchPad is no more

crunchpadYou know how everyone was so hyped up about the CrunchPad a couple of weeks ago, as the device was being primed for a release? After all, it has made its way past the prototype stage to be stable enough for a demo, running for hours without crashing with a user interface that was simple and intuitive enough to run without having to be on hand to provide additional instructions. Too bad the device is no more, no thanks to “greed, jealousy and miscommunication”, according to Michael Arrington of TechCrunch. Read on the email sent to Arrington and cringe – “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.”
