It's Apple's 'post-PC' world -- we're all just living in it
There is no Mac vs. PC here -- only "the future" versus "the past." It won’t be a debate about displays, memory, wireless options — it will be a debate about the quality of the experience. Apple is not just eschewing the spec conversation in favor of a different conversation — it’s rendering those former conversations useless.

Subtraction.com: iPad Magazines Go to ’11
Time to focus instead on coming up with new and genuinely different solutions to this admittedly vexing and unforgiving problem facing great print publications everywhere.

News on iPad, the Obvious Way
While many like our surface design—which, of course, makes us happy—, the main reason why people love our iPad design for ZEIT ONLINE is that it’s optimized to run on the killer content app No1: The browser. What is somewhat astonishing is that, so far, only very few newspapers took the time to optimize their website.

Designing for iPad: Reality Check
"If you favor style over function to make something look like something it is not, you are not a product designer, but a cheesy illusion artist. Leather buttons, stitches and torn paper edges, multi-screen-multi-column-pseudo-paper-layouts… on the screen it is just kitsch."

The iPad in the Eyes of the Digerati
The New York TImes asks six experts, "Does the iPad offer designers and users a new medium, or is it merely an iPod Touch on steroids? How much does the form factor of a device drive the creation of new kinds of content and how that content is read, heard and watched?"

Flash and Standards: The Cold War of the Web
"The problem with rallying behind a technology is that it traps us within the confines of its constraints. We easily shift “don’t know” and “not sure” into “can’t” and “won’t.” Creativity is dictated by programming languages. How sad. Technologies aren’t inherently bad or good."

A Free iPad with Your Paid Subscription?
Joe Zeff asks, "what if the publishing industry helped to defray that cost, bundling an iPad with a multiyear subscription to hundreds of newspapers and magazines? It’s a short-term investment that could pay off handsomely, and one of many options that should be considered in order to lure a new generation of readers to a new world of possibilities."
