Netly: The Third Screen

CrunchPad caught in legal limbo

Posted on: November 30, 2009


Say it ain’t so, Mike. I’ve been awaiting the launch of the CrunchPad for many months—ever since I saw a non-working version of it at a dinner with Arrington last summer.

But today, TechCrunch’s Gentle Leader says the project appears to be headed for the courts, rather than BestBuy. I feel like the Grinch stole Christmas.

Of course, this could also be some kind of negotiating tactic. A Stanford-educated lawyer, Arrington isn’t exactly scared by the legal system.

Also, am I the only one who thinks it’s ironic that the head of TechCrunch’s CrunchPad team is named Kindle?
