  • HP’s Slate WILL run on Windows, according to specs leaked on HP’s website.
  • Some Droid X screens are flickering. If that happens to you, just return it.
  • Verizon is rumoured to have two e-readers/tablets available in the fall.
  • Facebook’s lawyer is “unsure” if Mark Zuckerberg signed an agreement with the man claiming to own 84% of Facebook.
  • Message board 4Chan has been trying to attack Gawker the last few days.
  • eBay reports earnings today after the close. 
  • Adobe is trying to create a peer to peer mobile video chat service called “FlashTime.”
