The iPad – better to wait for version two?
Whilst Apple are reveling in all the hype of the iPad, and it’s sales success (or over-success for those on wait lists), poor old Microsoft and Fujitsu must be scratching their heads, wondering what they did wrong.
You see – the concept of a table PC has been around for quite some time – in fact I was the proud owner of a Fujitsu tablet PC way back around 2003.
The Fujitsu Stylistic was an awesome machine. Whilst it was a little bigger, and a little heavier than the iPad, it was overall, I believe, a better machine because it had one function the iPad does not; a writing tool.
With its stylistic pen, I could call up a conventional A4 lined writing pad and scribble notes to my hearts content – and never run out of paper.
As YouTube celebrates its 5th Birthday, and online video content evolves, the case for web based business video is compelling, if not conclusive: Online video is booming, globally, 16 billion videos are viewed every month – and online video is showing strengths to rival, and even exceed that of television.
International studies have shown that after viewing online video;
- 55% of respondents indicated they checked out the web site.
- 30% said they went to the store
- 24% made a purchase.
