Looking back on CrunchPad

Back in November, 2009, Michael Arrington announced the death of the CrunchPad
"It's a sad day at TechCrunch HQ. Hitting the publish button on this post, which makes all of this so...final...is a very hard thing to do. I'm enraged, embarrassed, and just...sad. The CrunchPad is now in the DeadPool."
I can't help but believe it was a good thing it failed. Yes, a good thing. Just think what would've happened to it after the iPad announcement? Sales would've dried up and he'd have been selling them out of his garage at a heavily discounted price just to get rid of them.
