Wow, interesting. Are they paid by Google to do this?

I'm so glad we have tech heroes like you to test out the alphas, Rob! I have a TouchPad at home, but honestly, I was too much of a sissy to try out this version... Please keep us posted on the updates! I'm glad the Alpha 2 fixed the battery life issue a bit, because it's not like the TouchPad has the best battery life as it is!

Using CM on touchpad for a few days now. Aside from the Wifi occasionally getting disabled during sleep (forcing you to disable/reenable from the notification screen) and the CPU minimum speed issue, it really feels more like a beta than an alpha. They really have done a top-notch job! In fact, I've just upgraded to Alpha2, which fixes these two (and more) issues, as well as improving battery life. Will see how it goes.

Good idea! I think Alpha versions are only for those with a surplus of $99 Touchpads lying around...

I've been following their progress, as I'm very interested in cyanogenizing my hp tablet. I have reasonable confidence in the cyanogen "product" since I'm already running it on my android phone, replacing the carrier's original crippled firmware. Still, I think I'll wait for the beta version before I completely jump ship on this one.
