It's been a while since anyone has mentioned iPad sales. It's been confirmed that they're moving out the door as fast as Apple can move them, and there's also verification that Apple's will be increasing production on the tablet in the days to come. But it's taken some time for the full brunt of the iPad's tremendous success to be understood by the computer and retail industries. It would seem that the time for some schooling has come. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn has stated that the iPad is cannibalizing upwards of 50% of all laptop sales from his company's chain of stores.
It was the tweet heard round the world. Microsoft was said to be working on iPad apps, and this from none other than Microsoft's blogger Paul Thurrott. Obviously, he was oblique to pique our interest. Consider it piqued.
Remember, remember the 5th of Novemember... or at the very least, one of the months other 29 days. Why? Because It's during that oft-neglected month of the year that iOS 4.2 for iPad will become available to eager Apple tablet-tapping consumers, brining with it, multi-tasking, a plethora of new features and yes: no-hassle wireless printing. Apple's calling this sweet new feature Air Print, and according to the company's PR people, Hewlett Packard will be the first company offering up compatible hardware that will sync up with your iOS powered devices to crank out the pages.
When Steve Jobs & Co. called the iPad magical and revolutionary, they didn't just mean what you could do on the device, but what you could do with the device -- as well as how it could inspire you. Much like Picasso signed his name in the air using slow motion photography, others are finding the big canvas of the iPad an interesting light source for illustration. It's completely otherworldly to watch.
Just when many thought print media was going the way of the dodo, Apple released the iPad and suddenly content is exploding from every direction in the universe. From magazines, to newspapers, to television networks, the iPad seems to be the go-to device for delivering content these days, but Apple may have a few tricks up its sleeves when it comes to newspaper subscriptions and the iPad.
There is a stumbling block that must be surmounted before we as a species can hope to tackle such dark issues as war, famine, and racisim. It is a topic of heated debate, being bickered out in multiple locales around the world as we speak. It is a subject so divisive, that it has torn the bonds of brotherhood and family with the murmur of its discourse.
Of course, we're talking about what iOS device can claim to be the speediest of them all.
If you've had trouble obtaining your iPad from your nearest Best Buy, but they could just never seem to keep them in stock, or it just plain did not have an Apple section, then worry no more. The company announced today that they will expand iPad sales to all 1,093 nationwide locations.
Skooba Design’s Netbook and iPad Messenger Bag might be designed specifically for those devices, but it’s actually big enough to swallow a 13-inch MacBook--as well as an iPad and accessories. The flexibility and extra room is nice, but if what you’re looking for is something to schlep your iPad around in, the Skooba might be bigger and more complicated than what you need.
You just know that there's trouble brewing for a product when their ads stop touting its features and start pointing out the perceived faults of a competitor's wares. If you're looking for an example, you needn't look any further than Amazon's latest ad for their revamped Kindle. Instead of talking about what makes the Kindle a decent reader--features such as its new lighter weight, crisper screen fonts, increased storage and free WebKit-based browsing--they focus on the glare of the iPad's full color screen and higher price point.
