Whatever Apple has in store for us at their event today, their broadcast of the event may be the big story in and of itself. Not only are they broadcasting video themselves, but they’re doing it via HTTP Live Streaming, a sign they think their standard is ready for primetime.
Warner posed the question “How Much Does Size Matter in the Tablet/Slate Universe?” expanding on rumors that Apple is preparing a 7″ iPad. This got me thinking beyond screen size to purpose and screen aspect and then on to branding. And it occurs to me that a 7″ iPad would not be nearly as helpful […]
Around 1450, a man named Johannes Gutenberg created a device that has had an immeasurable impact upon all people. His machine, the printing press, made it possible for text to be distributed much faster than the scribing process. Fast forward to 2010, the year that Steve Jobs and Apple Computer introduce the iPad. The iPad, […]

Been waiting and waiting for some new “insider” to step forward, but it seems everyone is onboard with the report that Apple’s iPod event on September 9th (09/09/09) will not introduce the mythic tablet. Guess this means we won’t see one until next year (or the year after that, or two years later, etc., etc.) […]
If you’re planning on getting an iPod touch, wait a few months. That’s the advice I’ve been giving everyone (with limited success – nothing could keep my mother-in-law from the Andre Rieu app), and thanks to a new report from Wired, I have more reason to stick to it. According to their “well-connected” source, cameras […]
TechCrunch is reporting that Apple has ordered up a massive number of cameras like the ones used in the iPhone, which means either they’re stocking up to sell way more iPhones or they’re going to incorporate those cameras into other devices, namely the iPods. Fueling the latter rumor are photos at MacRumors showing new iPod […]
Microsoft is keeping up the financial pressure on Apple. Now that it has released several ads in the Laptop Hunter series, it is now going after the iPod. Casting a financial analyst to deliver the goods, the ad says it will cost $30,000 to fill up an iPod. Of course this is to point out […]
University of Mossouri’s famed school of journalism is requiring incoming freshman to buy an Apple iPod Touch or iPhone. I’m all for using technology in the classroom, but this requirement smells like pure Apple fanboyism. According to this news article, 99.5% of the journalism students use Macs. The university says that students need an iPod […]
‘Tis the season to give gifts. Finding a few items to regift has come in handy a few times that I’ve been in a pinch. Regifting involves the redirecting of a gift that you’ve received, giving your gift to someone else. Regifted items are usually selected because they’re relatively inexpensive or a surplus has already […]
Rumors are rampant that Sony will be unveiling an iPod like device at CES2009. Does the world need another MP3 player? Maybe, maybe not, but if you can buy direct from the Amazon MP3 store that could shift that answer. If the specs I’m reading is true, there are a couple of very interesting aspects […]
