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?
