iPad satisfaction survey

Among 153 iPad users, 74 percent say "We are very satisfied" This was supposed to be part of my last post, but unluckily I could not make it.  Well, I believe in the philosophy of better late then never.  Here is what we have been discussing about iPad: Satisfaction percentage of the owners. A survey was conducted over 153 iPad owners and majority of them nod that they are satisfied with the features.  Number of eBook readers have increased in recent months and it has made a positive impact on iPad and its sales.  Lets have a look at the survey graph. If you see the graph, positive rating to iPad is done by 91% of the users which is much more than what Apple has expected. Good job Steve, keep it up!

iPad sale is higher than Mac

iPhone topping the chart, followed by iPad and Mac subsequently No doubt, iPad has become today’s trend. In spite of many drawbacks and limitations of iPad, it continues to rock European countries. It has left sale of Macs far behind. People have started believing it as the best travel companion and they are replacing  their laptops while they are on the move. According to RBC Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky , Apple is currently floating about 200,000 iPads per week, where Macs being moved are just 110,000. However, both of those Apple products stay far behind iPhone, which is apparently racking up sales of 246,000 per week. Lets have a look at graphical presentation.   Analyzing the graph, the present looks good and no doubt, Apple has planned to make some major changes in iPad and enhance the features, which will ultimately increase the sale in near future.  One of the most demanding requirement by iPad uses are a USB hub and a hi-resolution webcam.

Apple values the relation with Adobe

Steve’s article on relationship with Adobe Under the heading ‘Thoughts on Flash’ Steve published an article on Apple’s relation with Adobe No doubt relation between Mac and Adobe has been really great. Here is what Steve Jobs had to say about this, “Apple has a long relationship with Adobe. In fact, we met Adobe’s founders when they were in their proverbial garage. Apple was their first big customer, adopting their Postscript language for our new Laserwriter printer. Apple invested in Adobe and owned around 20% of the company for many years. The two companies worked closely together to pioneer desktop publishing and there were many good times. Since that golden era, the companies have grown apart. Apple went through its near death experience, and Adobe was drawn to the corporate market with their Acrobat products. Today the two companies still work together to serve their joint creative customers – Mac users buy around half of Adobe’s Creative Suite products – but beyond that the

iPad apps in limelight this week

  TIMES Time's app sets another great example of how to properly display print media on the iPad . It really does feel like flipping through a magazine. When you launch the app you're ushered to the cover where you can immediately start swiping pages to the conveniently laid out table of contents or launch the unobtrusive dashboard to scan articles and jump to a desired section. Articles are crisply depicted without compromise and the text is rich, satisfying, and readable. Time has also included an embedded browser for Time .com, where you can scan the top stories of the day, or catch up on relevant posts in a desired category. Everything is a very seamless experience and a wonderful step in the right direction. A few things like bookmarking and some slightly less fickle touch controls would be nice, but they hardly hamper the overall experience. WSJ Here it comes, the WSJ news application for iPad. Nothing new could be find in this application. Some t

iPad the latest wave of knowledge flow

Steve Jobs brought us all to a standstill when he unveiled Apple’s new tablet PC, the iPad. Multi-media functionality, eBook support, eReader software and the iBookstore confirm that Apple is jumping into the eBook market with both feet. But what does the iPad mean for publishers? From what’s currently known, we suggest there are four important implications: 1) Building iBooks: ePub Steve Jobs explicitly stated that the iPad will use the free and open eBook format standard − ePub. This is a surprising but welcome move for Apple to embrace a non-proprietary media format − and terrific news for the publishing industry. It will make it easy for publishers who have already adopted ePub to capitalize on the iPad and realize an even greater return on investment. We are already working with many of you to produce ePub content and are preparing for significant growth in volume ahead of the iPad’s release. However, it’s important to note that while ePub is a
