It’s probably not easy for Apple CEO Steve Jobs to slip in & out of anywhere these days, but when he heads to New York to meet with newspaper publishers only days after announcing the iPad, it’s gotta be even worse.
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.
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.
Various reports are coming out that the Apple CEO had some choice words about Google and Adobe at the recent internal company meeting. Also coming out of the meeting were some interesting tidbits, about what to expect from Apple this year.
Let's face it. This week's column is useless, completely and absolutely useless. Seriously. Did you miss anything this week, anything at all? Weren't you here every day, gobbling up the latest tablet rumors -- what would it be called, would it do this, would it do that?
And then, January 27th arrived, and from 10 am EST, you were here on the hour, hitting refresh every five minutes. Then the aftermath. What else would be revealed, what other new trickles of news would slip out?
Well, just in case you were buried under a rock or just secured parole yesterday, here's the roundup of the week the iPad made.
