No doubt Amazon is taking a big gamble on Kindle Fire but I think they are one of the few that can make such an attempt and have better chance at success than anyone else. Amazon offers a similar close buying/shopping-ecosystem as Apple, the only thing I think could hold them back is they might not have the same vision as Jobs for post-PC devices. Amazon is specialized in internet-shopping, Jobs-Apple is into making better products and user experience with these devices on...
What made you think Jobs didn't get it? One can copy to learn from the experience BUT when all you do is copying someone else and NOT inventing or creating something new or even improving... here lies the problem.Regarding, Apple taking Xerox's "commercially" not viable GUI computer and turning it more affordable and user friendly Macintosh...this video, in hindsight, oversimplified the creative process that took placed at Apple. "Copy-Transformation-Combine"...really???...
IF Jobs is right and Apple continues to fight off Android based on innovation, other smartphone will likely lose on the long run. Jobs has always push the envelope to innovate based on the concept of simple daily usage for its products lead by good functional design. For Apple to stay on the same path without Jobs is the question I have. Let's hope the management team he built will practice what he preached.
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.
