“This is one of Steve Jobs’ slides from this morning’s iPad launch presentation,” Paul Boutin reports for VentureBeat.

“Can you tell what’s wrong with it?” Boutin asks.

“The awkward array of five logos used to be a tidy lineup of six,” Boutin reports. “The day before the show, Apple removed McGraw-Hill, the 122-year-old publisher whose 61-year-old leader, Harold McGraw III — better known as Terry — prattled like a teenage schoolgirl about the tablet’s iPhone operating system on CNBC.”

MacDailyNews Take: What we wrote on Tuesday, just after McGraw appeared on CNBC: “Hey, Terry, a bit of advice: When Steve calls, don’t pick up.”

Boutin continues, “Insiders say as soon as Terry shot his mouth off on CNBC, Jobs had the company cut from the presentation. We won’t know for a few weeks if McGraw was only wrist-slapped, or if he’s been thrown out of the game.”

Full article, in which Boutin correctly advises, “If you’re working with Apple, shut up about it until Steve has left the stage,” here.

MacDailyNews Take: We think you’ll find McGraw-Hill in Apple’s iBookstore, but it may be awhile before they show up in any of Jobs’ on-stage demos.

By the way, here’s the full CNBC video, including the very end which was cut out of the broadcast (scroll to near the end):
