New iPads with FaceTime – it’s about time

As with most of the critics, I too was disappointed with the iPad’s lack of a camera.

This rumor (from MacRumors) might change that.  The addition of the FaceTime on a second generation iPad, which is currently available only on the iPhone 4 and the latest iPod Touch, would certainly increase its user base.  More devices with FaceTime equals better adoption overall of the feature.

Slow and focused wins the game iPad

Just my observation but I believe the iPad will be a long term success story much like the iPod was and remember that changed everything.

People (which include TV, Film and Print industry people) are much too much into immediate gratification. They have to help out in reaching that sweet spot. It’s not up to Apple to hand it over on a silver platter. Apple has simply provided the vehicle to achieve it.

iPad is an advance in technology that we don’t understand yet.  I am confident that this will be revolutionary for the future of the print and rich media industry.

That’s all I have to say 🙂

All will be revealed on January 27

It’s finally official – January 27, 2010 will be THE day that Apple announces it’s latest creation at a special event in San Francisco.

Am I Curious? Hell YES!

I predict a new iPhone OS 4.0, iLife ’10 and integration of all those components in this “newest creation”.

What do you think it will be called?  iSlate? Macbook Tablet? Apple Canvas (if you interpret the invite design)?

Let me know what your guess is.

Big Trend for 2010 – eBook Readers!

I was looking at some CES highlights and one thing (okay 2 things) were obvious to me.  One: 3D TV’s but that’s not what this post is about, and Two: eBook Readers!

At CES this year, there were no less than 11 eBook Reader offerings.  Here’s the breakdown:

  • E6 and E101 – Samsung
  • FLEPia – Fujitsu
  • iRiver
  • DMC Copia Reader
  • Entourage eDge
  • Alex eReader – Spring Designs
  • Skiff
  • Que – Plastic Logic
  • Hanvon
  • Amazon Kindle and Kindle DX (Now available on a Global scale)
  • Intereads – Cool-ER

Wow!  Add the rumored Apple tablet to that and that means lots of choices.  Yes this might mean confusion, but with this kind of competition, it’s the consumer that wins out.

I am more an audiobook reader but I still wonder who will win out in the end.

Here’s a link to Macworld’s article which covers the basics on each.

Which one do you think will win?  Do you agree that eBook Readers are the future of the publishing industry?  Let me know what you think.
