Smaller room = higher RDF saturation = better control of the ensuing media frenzy that will be the tablet introduction

Saw the interview on cnbc

In an interview with CNBC, McGraw-Hill's CEO confirms that their textbooks will be on the Apple Tablet and it will be an iPhone OS based machine. When asked about their textbooks being on the Apple tablet, Terry MrGraw responds (2m 50s):

"Yeah, Very exciting. Yes, they'll make their announcement tomorrow on this one. We have worked with Apple for quite a while. And the Tablet is going to be based on the iPhone operating system and so it will be transferable. So what you are going to be able to do now is we have a consortium of e-books. We have 95% of our materials in e-book format. So now with the tablet you're going to open up the higher education market, the professional market. The tablet is just going to be terrific."

From: http://www.9to5mac.com/apple-changes...ndustry_346777

In a statement released last night, Apple CEO Steve Jobs said, The new products we are planning to release this year are very strong, starting this week with a major new product that were really excited about.

Notice "new" products. Is he speaking merely of "new imacs" or actual new products as in plural.

Maybe you should be reported for constantly posting irrelevant items completely 'off-topic', harassment, being rude, being hostile, name-calling, disrupting topic-flow, etc.

Let's just hope that Apple's 'New Creation' is more amiable/friendly than many of our forum members.[/CENTER]

I have a similar viewpoint when it comes to owning vs. renting on iTunes. I purchase a lot of tv shows on DVD, but very very few on iTunes because of the DRM. I like having the hardcopy as well as being able to lend a season to a friend once in a while. The day (if ever) the DRM is dropped from the videos available on iTunes, then I'll start purchasing from the iTunes Store. I did the same thing after DRM was dropped from all the music. I stopped buying CDs and went to iTunes.

The main point is, if Apple can get a subscription or rental plan for TV shows, I will drop my Comcast TV service right away and go buy a couple AppleTVs. I don't expect the same freedom with rentals as I do with my purchases, so I tend to care less about the DRM in these situations.

Steve Jobs is going to be pissed with the McGraw-Hill CEO...He let the cat of the bag on live television! I couldn't believe my ears. So the iphone 4.0 software is what this thing will be running.

(though it really is a non-issue in the grand scheme of things)

I (typically) find your post enjoyable and informative, so what's your take on Apple's 'Newest Creation' and its possible impact on printed media?[/CENTER]

You're claiming that Ffmegx can remove FairPlay DRM from Apple's iTS videos? If so, please calrify because I can neither get it to work to find info explaining how to do it.

I need the cool new commercials to tell me why I need the cool new tablet. Meanwhile, I'll float down to the cafeteria on my chase lounge chair. I hope the tablet floats, too, because my hands are not used to doing work anymore.

Have you tried that app? I have to wonder if the DRM isn't cracked publically and in a free app that it's likely a scam. There waere quite a few of these sites back on the iTMS.

If Wednesday is a big, positive day for Verizon, perhaps it's because on the day before, the company has announced 13,000 employees will be laid off. Are Verizon's recent attack ads really the company's death throes?

I haven't seen any claims that anyone has found any filing with the FCC for an Apple device on a CDMA/EVDO type network. Without that, how likely would it be for them to have something available to sell on Vz tomorrow??

never mind, seems like they aren't saying they'll sell it tomorrow. ignore.

I don't think anyone expects any new carriers or hardware to be available tomorrow, just announced. The FCC will hold off releasing data until the company is ready (or likely until it's released for sale), with some aspects being allowed to be held indefinitely for reasons of confidentiality.

Seconded. Nothing but an attempt to say "look at me" without ever adding anything relevant to the conversation.

(I had AT&T before the iPhone and have had the best experience w/ them over Sprint and Verizon, had each of them for 3 years)

My own experience pretty much matches yours. I have not had anything to complain about AT&T when I moved over for the iPhone. Verizon and Sprint, on the other hand.....

At least now we know why the Verizon map was all red in the anti AT&T ad!

Perhaps having coverage where there are no people wasn't such a good idea after all.

My view is that there is no way this product can launch without some kinks and improvments that can come later.

I mean, look at the original iphone launch and compare that to the iphone of today. It's going to be the same for the tablet launch. Version 2 will probably be even more awesome with new features and stuff that we will all say that should have been there in the first place.

And by then, Jobs will have forced the media companies to come out with all the deals and media content at the prices/packages that he wanted at the tablet debut in the first place.

It's still going to be an awesome launch though. Too bad I can't be there live to see it.
