The Apple iPad: a Must Have as a Third Device?

4 Apr

Martin Giles, US Tech Correspondent for The Economist, writes in today's online edition about how Apple is trying to persuade consumers that an iPad or tablet is a must have. In First Impressions of the iPad he says that he had "only had a few hours to play with the new device, but his initial impressions are that Apple’s gizmo will help to convince people everywhere that there is indeed a place for tablet computers in their future as a “third device” that sits between mobile phones and personal computers."

Giles interviewed me after I purchased my iPad at the Best Buy store on Harrison Street in San Francisco on April 3. Giles writes "several of the folk at that store with iPads under their arms seemed to be Apple aficionados already. Aimee Levine, a self-confessed “gadget girl” who already owns an iPhone and iPod music player, said one of the main reasons for buying an iPad was that she planned to take out electronic subscriptions to her favourite newspapers and magazines on it, and to do away with the printed ones."

Joe the Plumber Goes to Gaza as a TV Reporter

8 Jan

Samuel “Joe” Wurzelbacher , the Ohio man who became famous during the U.S. presidential campaign after asking Barack Obama about his tax plan, is heading to Israel as a war correspondent for Pajamas TV Gaza Update.

“Joe” was held up by the McCain campaign as an example of an American worker who would be hurt economically by Obama’s election.

Wurzelbacher will spend 10 days covering the fighting and explaining why Israeli forces are mounting attacks against Hamas. He tells WNWO-TV in Toledo that he wants “go over there and let their ‘Average Joes’ share their story.”
