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."

The CrunchPad has been previously covered here.

Are you fucking dense? From the page:

"4K x 2K is shorthand for 4,000 lines wide by 2,000 lines high, or roughly four times the resolution of a 1080p display."

Exactly how does that statement express, in any way, that 4k video is "two" times 1080 HD resolution? It actually says "four times" right there on the page.

Sorry, you're just plain old full of shit.
