M.G. Siegler has wrote here another great post. Not because it’s about Apple, but about what we consider a PC these days
I’ve always consider my iPhone more as a personal computer than a phone. For me it’s a pocket personal computer featuring a phone app. I’m participating more socially, take photos, write blog posts, read books, take notes, reply to emails, listen to music and podcasts, manage my bank account, play games, edit movies, stream movies to my Apple TV, purchase items on the net, stay up do date with the latest tech and design news with Instapaper and Reeder, chat and keep in touch with friends oversea with Skype.
To tell you the truth, this is more than what I do with my MacBook Air on a daily basis. Why? Because I consider this thing in my pocket to be almost an extension of me, something that is even more personal than my PC seating at my desk.
I think the same would happen with the iPad with the years to come. It would be the computer that could be anywhere in the house and has its place like it always has belong there.
Benjamin Brooks talk about Readability business model after having follow a conversation on Twitter.
I agree with him that while it may not have been their intentions, Readability has become a little mafia in the publishing world, collecting money (with a cut) from potential writers who have not sign-up or opt-in for the service.
This is an aspect that most are not familiar with and it needs to be fixed some how.
A very very interesting post about why the touch interface should hopefully not be the only future of interaction. It must go beyond and be closer to how we embrace everything on a daily basis without even noticing it. A must read.
A very interesting article that sheds light on something we rarely talk about: the innovation side of Apple at an operational level, giving then their competitive advantage. Tim Cook being the genius behind this force for the past 15 years. A force that has contributed for example to grab 52% of the industry profit when controlling only 4% shares of the smartphone market.
