Lines for the JooJoo, too

There must be.  How else could eSarcasm have this article on their site?

You can always buy a JooJoo

From the looks of this article, Apple may have underestimated the initial demand for the iPad. Quoting All Things D:

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said this morning that his initial estimates of 900,000 iPads sold in the June quarter and 2.7 million in calendar year 2010 “may prove to be conservative.”

You can always get a JooJoo…I hear that the demand isn’t quite what Apple’s is.

If it sells like a turkey, it must be a turkey


That would be the total number of JooJoo tablet pre-orders.  Ninety.  And of that number, 15 got cancelled.  Guess it wasn’t a sharp idea to launch your tablet the same time as that other company, eh? Fusion Garage CEO Chandrawhatahardnametosaysekar Rathakrishnan must be suicical disappointed. Meanwhile, in the TechCrunch bunker in Palo Alto, a different kind of reaction is likely occurring, and somewhat bittersweet at that.

Wonder if Arrington ordered one

To be fair, that line belongs to Mosspuppet. He’s referring to the JooJoo tablet, which is actually shipping. So you can give Fusion Garage CEO Chandra Rathagothehardestnametopronounceintheworldkrishnan your $499 for an unproven product, or wait another week and buy an iPad from Apple. Who would you rather buy a tablet from? Namaste.

This story will make Michael Arrington’s day

Remember the JooJoo tablet?  The one that Michael Arrington took to Fusion Garage and then somehow they sorta made off with it?  Yup- that one. Their “CEO” is a guy named Chandrasenowaycanipossiblysaythisnamekar “Chandra” Rathakrishnan. So check this story on The Giz.  Rony Mirzaians decided to cancel his order, and look at the excuses tossed his way by JooJoo. Right, I’ll give them all that private data.I mean, do you want the nuclear launch codes from the White House, too?

JooJoo delay

Fusion Garage’s JooJoo tablet has been pushed back to a March 25 ship date due to manufacturing issues with the screen.  Which means, as Engadget’s Joanna Stern points out, is the same week another tablet is scheduled to debut.  Wonder what Apple thinks about that?

Hey Chandra, here comes Mosspuppet

Mosspuppet has had some classic freakouts, but this one might take the cake. Here he goes after Chandra Nowaycanyouhopetopronouncehisname, the CEO of JooJoo. Best quote of the bunch: “Aside from the entirety of this situation, what fascinates me is Chandra’s tone: he’s either completely unaware of anything that’s been in the news for 10 years, is certifiably insane, his fight-or-flight response is wired backwards, or his balls are as big as my goiter.” Although I also like “More fun from Fusion Garage and their whacky, possibly recently-thawed CEO, Chandra WrathofKhan.” WrathofKhan, geddit? Anyway, click and enjoy.

JooJoo woo hoo

JooJoo CEO Chandrasekar Rathaksomethingorotherrishnan wonders why Apple is “jumping into a category we’ve defined.” JooJoo is the Pad Formerly Known as CrunchPad, if you’ll recall.  He says his item will top the iPad because they’ll use Flash and have a web app store and an “uncompromised Web experience.” More nonsense here.

Is this dude serious? Ask Mike Arrington.

Remember ‘dis guy?

Chandrasekar Rathakrishnan. Now you remember.  The JooJoo guy.  Gee, wonder where the tablet he stole from Arrington new tablet is? The dude has been lying low.  He’s pledging to ship this month, it supports Flash (gulp) and when asked whether there will be JooJoo apps, he says;

No. Most of the apps in Apple’s store are a reflection of things that are already on the Internet. And now you have to build them twice — once for the iPhone, and once for the much larger, higher resolution iPad screen. Our app store will be the entire Internet, completely open and completely uncompromised.
