THE Big Apple Day

I found this quote today and it made me think about what Apple’s announcement might mean to the future of technology.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C. Clarke

I agree!

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.
