Temporary Insanity used to be a forum here on AI back in the day and it could get wacky.

Temporary insanity, though, doesn't just apply to us here at AI, but the entire tech world. At PC World, there is an article claiming the new tablet won't be good for business. What do you guys and girls think?

http://www.pcworld.com/businesscente..._business.html

Read the article. It boils down to 'Damn those end-users, they will use what we give them, and they'll LIKE IT'

IT shops that follow his mind set create their own security nightmares by not being proactive, foster an 'us against IT' mentality, and usually deploying 'solutions' that meet the needs of IT, not the end users.

I work in the health care field. a USEFUL, sealed tablet that can be safely integerated into our network, is light enough to be used as tablet, and is easy enough and quick enough that physicians will actually USE it would be very welcome

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Actually posted with 17 minutes to go, but allowing for 3-5 minutes of time for the server to process less info than a text message using the two gerbils and three hamsters it uses for a server.

Haha, they'll be sitting in their seats trying to act all cool about it but then the sweat will start pouring. Can you imagine if Jobs changes his mind now and annouce everything except the tablet? They'd probably leap on stage with pitchforks to attack him!

Agreed -- 3G connectivity should be completely optional.

To the best of my knowledge -- there is no streaming video feed of the event.

I doubt apple would allow it.

Well folks, I wasn't able to find an unofficial live video stream of the event in time.

So I'm signing off and will watch the keynote recorded later tonight. I'll catch up with you guys in the forum later tonight or tomorrow.

Have fun everyone! And like you all, I'm hoping for good news!

PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, Engadget and Gizmodo seem to be holding up pretty well. Ars, Macworld, the Apple Blog appear to have been killed dead.

It really did break the internet.

Huh. So far, it actually does seem to be sort of a "big iPhone", though of course the extra screen real estate changes up the experience quite a bit.

No mention of a camera in the quick hardware run down. "Apple A4 chip"?

41 minutes in and... completely underwhelmed.

The only 'cool' bit out it is the 10 hours of battery life.

I dunno, it looks pretty great to me. I think you should at least handle one before you rant.

Yea... we'll see. Remember the reaction to the first iPod and how many people thought of it as a pretty lame announcement...

BTW: AI broke it's "Most users ever" record this evening, more than 7000 people here now

iBooks. iWork. Now we're getting somewhere.

EDIT: And now we know why Apple dropped the "iBook" designation from their hardware lineup... they were saving it for an app!
