Things you can do to help TabletKiosk

Yesterday, we posted the bad news about the TabletKiosk warehouse being robbed. The community is stepping up and posting the story, getting the word out. It was on TechMeme last night and today.

Josh Bancroft has a good list of suggestions on what you can do to help. In addition to his list, if you have a blog or forum site, post the story as well:


First, Digg this story, so we can get the story in front of as many people as possible. (As of the time of this writing, it wasn’t on Digg yet, so I added it.) Post it to reddit, Netscape, forums, or wherever you think people might see it and be able to help.

Second, create some search feeds to keep an eye out for any TabletKiosk units on eBay or Craigslist. Here is an eBay RSS feed for all ““TabletKiosk” items (only 5 as of now).

Subscribe to that feed, and you’ll see any new items listed on eBay that match. You could also subscribe to the feed for a more specific search, like v7210, but as of now, there are no results, so I think the ““TabletKiosk” search is about the right level.

You can do the same thing on Craigslist, but since Craigslist is separated by city, do it in your own town. I’ve got a search feed for Portland, but you’ll need to create one for your town. Just search the ““For Sale” area, and click the little orange link to get a feed to subscribe to.

If you find anyone selling these devices for ““too good to be true” prices, or you have any other leads, please email Gail directly with your tips. If you want to be anonymous, use your favorite anonymizing proxy service.
