iPad Only One Day Away

leave a comment »

Hi folks, sorry for being MIA for the last couple of months.  I’m back and writing about none other than Apple’s highly anticipated tablet, possibly to be named the iPad.  Steve Jobs is expected to introduce the tablet at an event tomorrow.  The tablet has by far and away generated more buzz than anything else in the industry.  The CES ended earlier this month with major manufacturers showcasing the hottest gadgets and yet all anyone could talk about was the Apple tablet.  Steve Jobs has said that the tablet, “will be the most important thing I’ve ever done.”  There is a lot riding on this tablet besides Steve Jobs and Apple’s reputation.  The print industry apparently feels that this device could rescue their industry from the funk that they find themselves in in the age of the Internet where content is free.  They feel that they will be able to charge for content on the Apple tablet.  There’s a great piece on this in today’s NY Times:

For those of you who like a good rumor and who doesn’t, here’s a round-up of the top five rumors regarding the new tablet:

And finally here’s a commercial from a French site, most likely fake, for the iPad.

Apple’s Tablet Around The Corner?

I am someone who is partial to Apple products.  I have the iMac, an iPhone a few iPods.  I’m like a kid in a candy store when I go to Apple stores.   I’ve been waiting for the much rumored Apple tablet for nearly a year now.  Barron’s is reporting that an unnamed analyst has supposedly seen this tablet and that Apple will announce it in September.  Take this with a grain of salt but if it’s true and the analyst is correct about the multimedia functions of this tablet, Apple will once again have introduced a product that will send the rest of the industry scrambling.
