Well my wall charger finally died.... well I think it did. Wont charge anymore. Tried everything

Freezer.
Pry Out Prongs

Made my own charger... still wont charge. So I'm thinking the USB cable died. Not a problem ill head to the store. Sold out everywhere.

I love android, but I wish we had the backing of Apple, Apple's product are in every store... Cases, chargers, docks.

For the love of god if you want to compete with Apple, copy a couple things from them. If you want to release a new tablet, make it available in a couple weeks. I get ready to spend money and its months and months away. The excitement is gone.

But not now im stuck without my tablet I use every day... and the Asus store wont put my order through...

Well, that's good, because, from what I was reading, it sounded like you were suggesting that ASUS should open a chain of self-branded retail stores where they can carry all of their products in every store. Where to even begin on that?

If we're lucky, once ASUS does indeed open all their own branded stores, they will hopelessly lock down our devices, charge us double the cost and then make us submit to random drug screening to use their products too.....

Thumbs down
I called the Best Buy in Ames Iowa to see if they had the screen protector for my TF101 in stock (they install them too for a nominal fee).

The sales person that got on the phone chuckled at my request and actually said "If it doesn't have an "i" in the name, we most likely will have to special order it."


How lame is that?

To top it off...he was right. Not one in stock and none scheduled to be shipped to them unless I special order it and wait 2 weeks.

well funnily enough the bbc reported a couple days ago that Google are planning to start selling tablets directly and that Samsung and Asus are part of the range they plan to sell.
