Submission + - The End of the Crunchpad (washingtonpost.com)

paimin writes: A story of how a project can suddenly come undone from the folks at TechCrunch:

"Mostly though I'm just sad. I never envisioned the CrunchPad as a huge business. I just wanted a tablet computer that I could use to consume the Internet while sitting on a couch. I've always pushed to open source all or parts of the project. So this isn't really about money. It was about the thrill of building something with a team that had the same vision. Now that's going to be impossible. And I've also lost a friend Chandra spent months in our office this year and, until a week and a half ago, was the kind of young, determined entrepreneur that I admire. I thought we'd be friends for the rest of our lives."
