Whether you’re looking for a new computer, designer clothes, or ephedra diet pills, you can find anything on the internet these days.
Of course, before you can buy things on the internet, you need to be on the internet, right?
Hewlett-Packard Co.’s new tablet might look a little bit like Apple Inc.’s latest blockbuster gadget but it’s not meant to be an iPad killer.
HP, the world’s largest computer maker, started selling the Slate 500 on Thursday. It costs $799 and, like the iPad, has a touch-sensitive screen and no keyboard. But unlike the iPad, the device is aimed squarely at business users.
iPad killer? Probably not. In fact, definitely not. Now go rest before it’s time to exercise.
