Hockney favors the portability of Apple’s touch devices, which lets him capture entire landscapes, as they appear, in one sitting.
It still boggles my mind to see people in this world who believe iPad is just a content consumption device.
An obsession with treating “tablets” as an entirely new and separate product category is blinding some observers from what is really going on with the iPad — it is taking over a large segment of the PC industry. As iPad sales have grown, PC sales have contracted. I expect the iPad Air to accelerate both trends — the growth in iPad sales, and the contraction of the PC market.
iMore’s Rene Ritchie has a great round-up of all iPad Air reviews.
The Verge has great round-up of yesterday’s Apple event.
Fast Company has put together a fascinating series of posts about the history of Apple Design. The series features interviews of many people who were involved in the design process. The whole series is an absolute Gold-mine.
An Oral History of Apple Design:
Don’t forget to listen to a two-part interview of Max Chafkin, the man behind the “An Oral History of Apple” series and the book “Design Crazy.”
Byliner talks to Max Chafkin, author of the Byliner/Fast Company original eBook Design Crazy: Good Looks, Hot Tempers, and True Genius at Apple.
Apple has been a company that has gone through numerous phases in terms of the colors of their products. Looking back, you can see the ebbs and flows of color in Apple products, from the Mac to the iPod to the iPhone.
Linus Edwards looks back at times when Apple has dabbled with different colours in its products and offers a perspective on what it might mean going forward.
My Live-Blog picks for today’s Apple Media Event in San Jose.
However, if can’t watch the live-stream then there are some great alternatives. If you prefer watching a single live-blog to keep pace with the event then i suggest you follow gdgt’s live blog. Ryan Block has become my favourite live-blogger during the Apple Events.
Other fantastic alternatives:
Jim Dalrymple keeps his updates short and to the point.
Joshua Topolsky and Nilay Patel have done a fantastic job of covering Apple events in the past and i expect nothing different this time around. Expect a few jokes in the time-line.
It’s Macworld and Jason Snell and Dan Moren are two of the best writers in the Apple community. They definitely don’t shy away from throwing in a couple of jokes in the time-line.
As AllThingsD reported in August, Apple will hold a special event this month at which it will showcase a new, smaller iPad. People familiar with Apple’s plans tell us that the company will unveil the so-called “iPad mini” on October 23 at an invitation-only event.
Update: Jim Dalrymple Says “Yep” to All Things D’s Report. It just can’t get any credible than this.
Glad Apple is diversifying the iPad line not that i ever doubted otherwise.
When last deal finally closed on April 25, 2012 $270 billion of Greek debt had been reduced to $130 billion.
"It was the largest financial transaction in the history of the world," says Apfel. "And we couldn’t have done it without the iPad."
The iPad is not a just a nice, shiny toy.
