This MacBook Touch concept is so dumb that I don't even know where to start ripping it apart. From the hinge's physical feasibility to the ergonomics—which make absolutely zero sense. But what do you think?
I know, another tablet rumor right? But stay with me on this one. Taiwan Economic News' "industry sources" say it's real, and will have a 9.6-inch touchscreen, HSPDA, a P.A SEMI processor, "long lasting battery" and cost $800 to $1000...
This one caught us by surprise, but it comes from a source that has always been 100% reliable: Not only Apple may be working on a 10-inch tablet, but also in 13" and 15" models, one running Mac OS X.
For this week's Photoshop contest, we asked you to create images showing the fabled Apple Tablet being used in day-to-day life. And there's a clear line between those craving the tablet and those mocking it. I prefer the latter.
A recent survey from Borders Bookstore seeks to find how familiar its customers are with e-readers from Amazon, Sony, and Plastic Logic. This particular survey, however, includes "the Apple iPAD (large screen reading device)," which is interesting.
I have a very wet dream: Tote around an Apple tablet. Subway trains, beds, airplanes, toilets, cafes, bath, restaurants, offices, conventions... everywhere. How do you imagine it fitting in your life? Show it to everyone with an image. Here's how:
A few high level music industry sources are saying that Apple's next event will be September 7, focused (logically) on music, which means iPods.
Some don't believe the first video of this Apple Tablet OS UI vid is real but here's a clearer and with strange hardware. All I know is that this is a cool concept.
There's a lot of speculation about the Apple tablet, but coming November, this is how my desk is going to look. Or at least, this is what I want. Check it out in super high definition:
Some guy has posted this video, saying it's the Apple tablet in action. I'd go crazy here for a minute, and say that this is as fake as the iPhone 3G images with 99.9% certainty. And this is why:
After last Sunday's rumor on the Apple Tablet's September announcement, and yesterday's evidence of two new iProducts in the iPhone OS 3.1 USB devices list, I have decided to elevate the level in our Apple Tablet Probability Meter to 90%.
It was only hinted before in a text string, but the new iPhone OS 3.1 update's USB Device Configuration XML property list clearly shows not one, but two new unidentified Apple products:
This is one small step forward in the Apple Tablet rumor. An anonymous Barron's analyst says he's seen the Apple Tablet and that the thing will be announced in September for a November launch.
Although it wasn't the most enticing of the flurry of rumors floated in the FT's Apple tablet report, the claim that iTunes might grow an eBook arm certainly raised eyebrows. It turns out, though, Apple might actually outsource this one.
Our own Adam Frucci doesn't like the idea of tablet computing. And most of the world agreed with him back in 2001 when Bill Gates and Microsoft were pushing the form factor.
Everyone has their panties in a twist over rumors of this upcoming Apple Tablet, but has anyone actually stopped to think about how Apple's going to address all the potential issues? Because there are quite a few.
