Okay, so the world didn't
change. Steve Jobs came out, unveiled the iPad, it was pretty much most
of what we'd come to expect by this point with a surprise or two thrown
in. Seriously, Apple, AT&T again? That we didn't see coming.
you know what you should see coming? A week's worth of articles, sliced
and diced, chopped and grated, and summarized for your pleasure below. Who says the only thing going on is the freaking Super Bowl?
Before Steve turned it into his personal showcase and the Apple booth
had to be draped in black curtains, Macworld was a place for fans and
professionals to share ideas free from the prying eyes of PC users,
where product announcements were welcome but not necessary, and the
keynote was the least interesting part of the show.
Something that wasn't made clear in the
iPad announcement was the release of a new software development kit
(SDK) from Apple for app developers. In this case that's big news,
though, because it removed the restrictions on calling over 3G.
Today, Skype posted in their
blog that a new version of their iPhone software is coming that
will remove the Wi-Fi only limitation on Skype calls.
At an Apple town hall meeting, Steve Jobs allegedly took at swipe at Google and Adobe. He then talked about how the world is moving to HTML 5.
A Chinese tablet maker is threatening legal action against Apple because, allegedly the iPad has a similar design to a product they released last year. Hopefully we'll be able to get the Chinese tablet in for review.
