Buy Apple Ipad from Amazon.com

Crazy low prices from $580.00

by DANIEL LYONS,News Week.

Why do we invest so much hope in new technology? What do we expect these devices will do for us, and why are we so disappointed when the Next Big Thing turns out to be just a new computer? This is what I’m asking myself after Apple’s latest overhyped product introduction. This time around the Next Big Thing is called an iPad. It’s basically an oversize iPod Touch, and it will be great for watching movies, reading books, and browsing the Web.

Yet for some of us who sat in the audience watching Steve Jobs introduce the device, the whole thing felt like a letdown. The iPad is a perfectly good product. It’s reasonably priced, and after spending a few minutes with one, I’m pretty sure I’ll buy one for myself and probably a second one for my kids so they can watch movies on road trips.

So why did I feel disappointed? As a friend at Apple put it, “Did you think it was going to cure cancer or something?” The thing is, rumors about an Apple tablet have been floating around for months, and during that time a lot of us started dreaming up a list of amazing things that it might do.

Some said the tablet would save newspapers and magazines by creating a platform where publishers could charge readers for digital subscriptions. Others said Apple would offer TV subscriptions so we wouldn’t need to have cable TV anymore.

At the very least, we had hoped a tablet from Apple would do something new, something we’ve never seen before. That’s not the case. Jobs and his team kept using words like “breakthrough” and “magical,” but the iPad is neither, at least not right now. It might turn out to be magical for Apple, because what Jobs is really doing here is trying to replace the personal computer with a closed appliance that runs software only from Apple’s online App Store. So instead of selling you a laptop and never hearing from you again, Apple gets an ongoing revenue stream with iPad as you keep downloading more apps. That really is “magical”—for Apple’s bottom line, anyway.

And that’s fine. What’s wrong, or at least interesting, is why some of us expected so much more from a new gadget. I suspect this is because for some people, myself included, technology has become a kind of religion. We may not believe in God anymore, but we still need mystery and wonder. We need the magic act. Five centuries ago Spanish missionaries put shiny mirrors in churches to dazzle the Incas and draw them to Christianity. We, too, want to be dazzled by shiny new objects. Our iPhones not only play music and make phone calls, but they also have become totemic objects, imbued with techno-voodoo. Maybe that sounds nuts, but before the iPad was announced, people were calling it the “Jesus tablet.”

Our love affair with technology is also about a quest for control. We’re living in an age of change and upheaval. There’s an overwhelming sense of powerlessness. But technology gives us the illusion of control, a sense of order. Pick up a smart phone and you have a reliable, dependable device that does whatever you tell it to do. You certainly can’t say that about your colleagues or families. And no wonder a lot of folks in the media wanted to believe that a new device from Apple could stop the decline of our industry. Newspapers and magazines are struggling to adapt to the Internet, and no one has any idea what our business will look like when we get to the other side of this wrenching period. We just have blind faith that technology ultimately will make our business better, not worse. In one example of that blind faith, David Carr of The New York Times wrote recently that Apple’s tablet would be nothing less than “the second coming of the iPhone, a so-called Jesus tablet that can do anything, including saving some embattled print providers from doom.”

He may even be right—eventually. My friend Richard Ward, the vice president of innovation at IHS Inc., a research firm, imagines deals in which you’ll get an iPad free, or at a very low price, when you sign up for a two-year subscription to one or more news publications. No doubt there will be loads of partnerships and new uses coming.

The thing about any new platform, including the iPhone and now the iPad, is that its real power is never apparent on day one. What Apple delivered last week is a simple product that does a few things very well. And whatever disappointment we might have felt says more about us than about Apple.

What’s new to the tech savvy world? The Apple Tablet PC, that’s what it is. “The Apple magic is great technology and great marketing. We’ve seen it with the iPod, the iPhone and, before that, the Mac. That’s why this is so exciting. They’ve been working on this for the past six years. People expect it to be the ultimate Apple surprise. This thing will knock people’s socks off,” Leander Kahney, author of The Cult of the Mac said.
Some are saying 2010 will be the year of the Apple Tablet PC. In fact, people started contacting the company to be placed on a waiting list for the iSlate’s release as far back as October of 2009, as the company is expecting to sell $2 million Apple Tablet PCs this year, the waiting list might be a good option for someone who really wants their hands on the islate tablet now!
iSlate’s sleek look is that of the ever popular iphone, just bigger. No surprise here. Over the years, Apple has been very successful at creating a unique look for their products. The Apple Tablet PC isn’t the device’s official name, just what’s it’s been called because it resembles a tablet. So what exactly does the Apple Tablet PC do? It’s a tablet—you write on it with a pen, like you would an ordinary writing tablet. It’s a computer, the Apple Tablet PC allows you to check your email or surf the web and it has a variety of other features, such as a gaming application
And to some the Apple Tablet PC is a Kindle-killer! In fairness, this might be an appropriate name for the iSlate Think about it. You can read your favorite magazines or newspapers wherever you are, and you can do it from the same device you’re checking your email and taking notes on. This convenience must have some effect not only on Kindle sells, but what’s left of the paper press world. To date the Kindle has sold about 300,000 units not much competition for the Apple Tablet PC expecting to yield a sales result of 2 million this year alone, a reasonable estimate considering the quantity of sales for iPods or iPhones.
While market price has never been one of Apple’s strong suits, the islate is expected to sell at about $600, placing it just between the iPhone and a Macbook on the price spectrum, making it easy to reach that sales estimate of 2 million this year. However, even if this cool new gadget debuts priced a bit higher than that it’s still expected to do well. After all, the Apple name is worth something, not to mention that all important loyal fan base.
To the consumer, Apple Tablet PC is a streamline product making it possible for you to do many of the things you need to from one piece of equipment. To some corporations, the iSlate tablet pc is an enemy, making it unnecessary for you shell out cash on several different electronic devices, when one is really sufficient. To Apple it has to be this year’s cash crop! Priced moderately as $600 per Apple Tablet PC, current sales estimates see apple tablet pc bringing in a whopping $1.2 billion for the company this year.

Apple Tablet PC

It has been rumored now for more than three years that the concept of an Apple tablet-style laptop is something that many of us computer geeks and complete newbies to computers have dreamed of. There have been periods of both anticipation and frustration that have gone hand-in-hand with each rumor of an impending release of a MacOS based portable computing solution that has the ease of use and the power of an Apple but also has the ultra-portability of a computer. It seems that people get their hopes up only to have them dashed again by “it’s not quite ready for the market”. Why such a long wait? Many have become completely exasperated as they have long wished for the first Apple tablet laptop.

The Modbook from Axiotron has now made its debut. This is the day that so many of us have been waiting for! We have been waiting for this tablet computer for the last three years and it is truly something to shout about!!!!

The Modbook is not an “official” Macintosh computer. Axoiotron manufactures this computer and runs MacOS X. As of right now, it is the only game around for a tablet computer operating on the MacOS platform. This tablet computer is gaining great popularity among students, designers and anyone who is looking for the lightness and portability of a tablet PC and the Apple suite of programs for creative endeavors.

A 13.5″ screen is one of the features of the Modbook as well as a stylus from Wacom which is powered by Apple’s Inkwell software. This tool has amazing handwriting recognition which does much better than its Microsoft based competition. When tested, the most illegible handwriting was able to be recognized and translated into readable text on screen. This is an amazing feat particularly when this is a relatively early stage as far as the history of handwriting recognition goes. Inkwell is a very advanced system; it will be fascinating to see where Apple takes this functionality in the future.

The Modbook does not have true touch screen functionality. The interaction with the screen must be done by using the Wacom stylus. This stylus performs to its greatest capacity and can even be used with such things as Photoshop and Corel Painter. The usefulness of the Modbook appeals to its target audience. Note taking and drawing can be done directly on the screen.

Now we come to the part that many of you geeks want to know – specifications. The Modbook runs Mac OSX v 10.5 (leopard). It comes with a 2.1 Ghz processor, there is 1 GB of memory onboard and it has all of the standard set of connectivity options that you would expect from a MacIntosh computer: Ethernet, FireWire, Airport and USB.One cool thing that is integrated into the Modbook is GPS so you never have to get lost on your way to a meeting again! You can find your way around anywhere all at the touch of a screen!

A standard feature that comes with the Modbook is an iSight camera. Many people will be thrilled with this feature particularly artists who do double duty as geeks. For the rest of us, it is simply a nice toy to have.

There is an exceptional design to the Modbook. This computer is not manufactured by Apple but it does this company a great deal of justice. Axiotron has really outdone itself! A beautiful chrome finish tops a double layer of nickel and copper plating. A casing is made of magnesium alloy that is similar to what is used in aircraft. This portable computer is durable and is made to last. There is a satin finish, but within the next couple of months mirror finished chrome will be available. This will satisfy the need of those who need to have a shiny computer.

The durability factor extends far beyond the casing. The iSight camera and the screen are protected by Axiotron’s ForceGlass that makes it scratch resistant as well as more durable. This scores exceptional points when you compare it to the plastic covered LCD screens that you usually find in portable computing. The cover and screen are also exceptionally clear and bright. It is like one that rivals no other! This is due to an anti-reflective coating on the underside of the screen and an acid treatment on the outer side that reduces “sparkle” and glare effects. This feature is especially appreciated by those who regularly use laptops.

Also included is a full-featured optical drive which supports CD writing and DVD-ROM. This is upgradeable to a DVD-ROM/CD-R drive. This is not typical for a tablet computer. Therefore, the Modbook is a fine choice for entertainment as well as for creativity and work.

The Modbook has been a long time coming but is so worth the wait! It offers the portability of a tablet PC and the stability and performance of a Mac. Apple lovers can now rejoice! Calling all animators, artists and Photoshop nerds – your tablet is now here! The Modbook is highly recommended for all people who seek a tablet that can offer exceptional handwriting recognition and access to the creative software of the Mac platform. All of this comes in one sleek and attractive package.

So, now do the smart thing and get the Modbook Mac Tablet. It is a modified Apple Macbook that does have a touchscreen but it has no keyboard. It is also equipped with WiFi. This tablet looks very slick but, as of yet, no price has been announced. It is likely to be very expensive. Does that really matter? Give it a try!
