New MacBook Air Review: Can the Best Get Better? -
May 6, 2014 | WSJ | By JOANNA STERN.

Consumers are increasingly confused by the blurring lines, too. When weighing the 11-inch MacBook Air versus the 9.7-inch iPad Air, both are highly portable computers with a similar footprint, especially when you attach a keyboard to the iPad. With the iPad you get a great tablet experience capable of some laptop tasks. With the littlest MacBook, you get a computer that is comfortable on your lap, but no fun to read on in bed.

What I really want to come out of the envelope one day is a piece of hardware that pushes both Airs together without compromise. Yes, that means a super-slim machine with a touch screen, some sort of keyboard, 4G connectivity and multi-day battery life. But I want other features, too, that can liberate us from the ways we interacted with computers in the PC era.

How about Siri, managing email on our phones and laptops? Gesture control to manipulate on-screen objects with a wave of the hand? Wireless or even solar power, so I can ditch the charger? Connection ports disappearing altogether, as everything goes wireless and up into the cloud?

That all may sound crazy, but so did the original Air. Now look how normal it seems.

Apple’s iBooks 2 takes a bite out of education | News
Jan 19, 2012 | National Post | Tristin Hopper.

Apple Inc. on Thursday launched iBooks 2, its long-awaited iPad-based platform designed to usher in the “digital destruction” of the multi-billion-dollar textbook industry — but critics suspect the tech giant’s steep device costs will keep the platform out of reach for most school boards.

Through iBooks 2, students will be able to highlight text, make notes and view video and 3D images all within the same textbook application.

The tech giant has already partnered with major textbook publishers including Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, McGraw-Hill and Pearson — and announced it would be working with a number of major U.S. colleges and universities.

IPads Are Latest Weapon in Medical Sales -
Medical-sector companies are passing out thousands of iPad tablet
computers to salespeople to spruce up their pitch to doctors, and at the
same time giving Apple Inc. a crucial foot in the door to business
customers. Abbott Laboratories, Medtronic Inc. and Boston Scientific
Corp. are among the drug and medical-device firms making the move, while
others say they are testing out the devices.

The tablet computers offer new ways to display product information or
surgical-implant techniques, and help eliminate time wasted on issues
that don't drive sales, according to companies. Their quick start-up
times mean the salesmen can jump into their presentations before doctors
lose interest.

Crovitz: From the Roman Codex to the iPad -
JANUARY 31, 2010, | Wall Street Journal | By L. GORDON
CROVITZ. " Apple's tablet reminds us there is a digital revolution
redefining the book. Books in their emerging forms make the best example
so far of using print for what it does best, digital for what it does
best, and both together for a dramatically new experience"...See also
Robert Darnton, director of the Harvard library, author of "The Case for
Books: Past, Present and Future" (Public Affairs, 2009)...."The history
of communication is that new technologies reinforce rather than
displace the old" ""Every age is an information age," Mr. Darnton says.
"It's just that information is organized in different ways." "
