I second this sentiment. I'm in publishing and everyday I see how wasteful we can be producing even a single 1-color title due to bottleneck workflow practices. I welcome the iPad and these new digital content-interactive approaches. Certainly producing this new type of e-content will require new and better trained staff to pull this off. It's very likely expensive to start producing interactive ebooks/ezines, but like everything thing else, once you get the hang of it...
Second this sentiment. Some people simply take preserving history to the extreme AT other people's expenses.BTW, arguments like this really have a simple solution, people that wants to save it and are so high-n-mighty... should put up the cash and buy the property from Jobs. Otherwise, really...shut it?! What's more annoying than getting your nose up someone else's business and get all ethical on them? Also, dont even compare this house to Mona Lisa painting...it's not...
Makinson does get it. At least this one publisher has the guts to embrace and explore the possibilities. Kudos to him.
Self-Censorship is always a silly move. First they don't want porn apps and now nothing too "sexy". What is next? Nothing too stupid? There are plenty of those "stupid" apps that will dumb down end-users. Apple is walking a thin line here and forgetting to let end-users to determine if there is a market for any of those apps. Apple is treating these "content" as if it cheapens the Apple brand. Don't pull a "Tiger Woods" on us Apple!
Gates didn't thought much of ipods and iphones... did he missed the market share report on those Apple products? Pretty sure he didnt think much of Google when it was launched. It's one thing to be loyal to your own brand and products, it's foolish to dismiss something he doesn't get.
If NYTimes executives have any brains left, they would jump on this opportunity to experiment with a different kind of revenue. The sad thing is they don't even know how to reach their audience anymore so readers would be willing to paid for content. I would not be sad to see more failing publishers to go out of business...sooner rather than later might actually force people in print industry to re-think what they are really selling in a digital age. The laughable part...
A single multi-functional device starting $500 that can replace at less four-five devices that are currently out in the market. This thing will sell like hot cakes, maybe even exceed analyst's expectations. Ultimately, i think the limited memory (16GB-64GB) and without USB ports for add-ons is the biggest drawback.
They never learn do they?
I second this sentiment. The biggest problem with print media today is that they put out trash. With internet and faster access to information, consumers are in the drivers seat. We will only PAY for good content, it doesn't have to be EXCLUSIVE, but it MUST be good within a certain price range. Newspapers and magazines used to be within that affordable price range for me, (newspaper <$0.75, magazines < $4 on newsstand)...we are now well beyond that price range for...
What does John expect from Steve? Changing the name of a product is not like asking them to ceasing making it and want a chunk of money from them. That said, if it's not that "big of a deal" why bother suing the small company? There is a reason I hate copyright/trademark laws, it's all written in stone. You can sue people for using "ipod" in a product name that aren't even a direct competitor, what's next? Of course, the claim would be Apple spent money advertising that...
