That’s right, I am an Apple lifer. Over the last 20 years, I have bought a number of Apple computers. I am a huge fan of their operating system, their user interface, their attention to design and packaging … well, essentially, everything that Apple has produced. Nearly everything. For the record, I did not buy those multi-colored iMacs when they came out. They looked like igloos on drugs. When the iPhone came out three years ago, I stood there salivating and watching my watch as the seconds ticked down on my Sprint contract. When I finally got an iPhone, I wasn’t disappointed, save for the battery consumption issue which still leaves me smarting.
In about 10 hours, Apple is set to launch a tablet-like device. Will it do for book authors and newspaper publishers what the iPod did for the music world? How will the new Apple tablet (iSlate, iPad or iTablet as it may be called) revolutionize your life? Comment below to let me know.
I am visiting India at the moment, but the new Apple device will be one of the first things I will check out when I get back to the US. I look forward to reading your thoughts on this potential game-changer.
