The Cius

It looks like Apple will have a competitor in the tablet arena. Cisco will be releasing their product early next year. The difference is Cisco’s version is aimed towards corporations. Let’s see how this plays out over the next few months.

Should You Get Your iPad Now or Wait?

Check out this article in SmartMoney.com by Kelli Grant — Should You Pre-Order an iPad?

Kelli says that most average consumers should wait a few months until the technology matures and prices drop before purchasing. I agree. Like all technology, version one will have its share of problems out of the box. Remember the the first generation iPhone? A perfect example of why waiting will be beneficial.

An Apple A Day…

Today (January 27), Apple will be having its much-hyped media event. Over the last few days the net has been a flurry of gossip, leaked photos, and unofficially Apple executive quotes. What is a fan boy to do with all this info? It just makes me giddy…

I must admit, I always look forward to such events from Apple. It is like watching something being created and you are there to take part in the excitement and oohh and aahh over it.

Today, if rumors are true, Apple will be announcing the much anticipated and secretive “iPad” from Apple’s skunkworks.

Something new to add to my Christmas list this year. If the blogs are true, this device will revolutionize publishing, as we know it. I hope so, this industry needs to have a shot in the arm to revive it. I personally don’t read newspapers anymore but do so online on my iPhone. A device that has a bigger screen will be so helpful.

I am going to wait a few months to see how things shake out similar to how I migrated to the iPhone. I am a second-generation kinda guy. I believe in letting others shake the bugs out before I jump on board. And besides, if this takes off, the second gen model will have vastly better features. Just wait and see.

There is also talk that additional carriers for the iPhone will be announced. I think that is great. I believe in competition. I pay vastly too much for my cell service now and the quality of service is just ok.

So we will see what Apple has up their sleeves.
