Apple Most Valuable Brand In The World
Tim Cook: Highest paid CEO at Apple?
Obama kills SOPA
Rumor: Apple to hold 'iPad 3' & iOS 5.1 event in early February
Producing Apple Products in USA
Apple Thursday Event
- AI: Pages is already a really good eBook builder
- At the moment there is really not a good reason to go with the iBook store instead of Amazon's Kindle store.
- If they make it possible to embrace this technology they would have an edge for the iBook store.
- It would force Kindle to finally adapt the ePub standard.
- AL: A lot of schools have been very slow in making a decision in regards to choosing a technology.
- If ePub 3 is established it might be easier for schools to adapt the iPad as their main device for students in order to cover their requirements.
- We are building a school in Rwanda around the iPad, so we are hoping that something exciting is announced.
iPad 3 Retina Display Rumor
- LL: Do you agree that the Retina display is coming in the iPad 3?
- AL: I agree.
- AI: I agree.
- DM: I agree.
- LL: You're all wrong, because a Retina display would fragment the market too much, because developers would have to program for 3 different resolutions.
- LL: Coming in March?
- AL: March.
- AI: March.
- DM: March.
- LL: You are right...
- LL: What about 4G?
- DM: Doubt it.
- AI: Undecided.
- AL: LTE but not 4G.
- LL: You guys might be right. There is a chance for LTE and 4G in the iPad 3.
- Bloomberg says that LTE could come to the iPad before the iPhone because of the bigger battery.
- LL: Will we see an iPhone in June?
- DM: They have to bring something big for WWDC.
- AI: I think they have to wait. They might show it off in June but bring it out later.
- LL: Maybe September?
Tips & Picks
