Ever since running a post almost a year ago about the hip-e computers, a line of computers and accessories designed to appeal to teenagers, I have gotten emails and comments asking where they can be obtained. This rarely happens and is solid proof of the great interest in the hip-e comper and the appeal the early media mentions created for a "teen" computer. The hip-e have appeared at numerous conferences and expositions but I don’t think they were ever available for purchase. I now know the reason why having just read a post on Dwight Silverman’s blog. Dwight is the technology columnist and blogger for the Houston Chronicle and he is reporting the company behind the hip-e is no longer in business. So maybe now the emails will stop.
