  • Wireless Keyboard for TouchPad, iPad Sold Separately, Thanks For The Tip Best Buy



    Sometimes I wonder who on this beautiful and vast planet of ours is in charge of things at Best Buy. Whether it's blatantly lying to customers about a products functionality, or opening an Xbox 360, installing a firmware update, and then repackaging the system as "pre setup" and charging $30 more, they never cease to amaze me.

    Which is why this shouldn't surprise me either.

    On Best Buy's website they've listed a Wireless Keyboard, specifically marketed for HP's TouchPad, with a notice that "iPad sold separately."

    Thanks Best Buy, really couldn't have figured that one out.

      Oh wow.. I bought my MacBook Pro from them yesterday hoping to receive the "matched" back to school sale. Apparently their way of "matching prices" is to add 40 bucks to what it is online. Nevertheless I still preferred to have a $100 Best Buy gift card than an iTunes card so I just went ahead and dished out the extra dough.

      I must say the quality of articles on this site has really started to slide... just in the past 2 days.. from lack of confirmation before rushing to post something like "a Cydia update" to this article.. whatever you want to call it... pointless to say the least... who care about Best Buy and their typo... wow .. I hardly call that news... come on ModMyi!!

      And the writers of ModMyi never cease to amaze me with the things they consider to be "news." Nice job Phillip, now I can be confident in revisiting this site for some more juicy news regarding new and up-and-coming apple products. Oh wait? God only knows why I bother coming back to this site...

      I'm glad I saw someone... or multiple someone else's post this. I would have felt bad being the first. But really... I still come to ModMyI only because it's the first site I ever really followed for Apple... but I seem to check at least 1 other site because I can't plan on it delivering real enough content.

      Please guys, have a team meeting about this and get a process together, I don't want to leave ModMyI entirely :-(

      I agree, I have been disappointed for a few months now. However I could complain about it all day, it wouldn't change a thing would it? Just to be straight, I have also noticed a significant drop in the quality, but I think it's much more then just lack of patience to publish
      . I have often come across sentences that I had to re read dozens of times... The thing is, the MMi community has grown, just like the number of smartphone owners these past years. With the evolution the iPhone (macs and Apple altogether) only so fast, there isn't always something interesting to write about that everyone would appreciate. But I still think MMi could improve certain things a bit for us to enjoy a more constant reading quality.

      The quality of the site is definitely slipping recently.

      Do none of the MMi writers spell check their work? There are so many examples of "your" instead of "you're" it's unreal. Basics.
