  1. 3rd Quarter of 2010 for a product announced in January?

    Someone somewhere is high!
    High on their own Apple Tablet Rumors.

    Maybe someone should start talking all of these people reporting Apple Tablet Rumors down off the Vista’s that they’ve talked themselves on to.

    So, the public is going to start yelling for them to Jump.

  2. How many months are required by FCC to give their stamp of approval and compliance on a product that uses the national airwaves? ie 3G? would wifi be considered to fit in this category?

    Anyway, my real post was…

    Hey Microsoft, where’s yours? Why can’t you be first out of the gate with your “Courier” project?!

    Why do you have to come out second making you look like you had to produce a slightly different version of the same thing, thanks to Apple!

  3. I would bet it is a larger portable computer based on the same technology. If it is radical enough, it would be expected to make it’s way into other product. Knowing Apple wants more market share and to sink the dagger deeper into Microsoft, why not make a MacBook even more advance than it’s competitors.

    Apple returns carryIng a sledge hammer and throwing at the projected image of Steve Ballmer.

    Why do you think Bill Gates abandoned Microsoft. Because Steve Jobs said he was in his sights. Yup, the smartest rat left the ship and the dumbest rat assumes the helm!

  4. I’m beginning to think Fred Mertz is writing these articles. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

    The Dow Jones shat this log of subterfuge to lend credence to the notion Apple’s tablet is real.

    What’s not real, is the obscene amount of money that will trade hands in the next few months.

    Apple is an instrument of wealth for those who could careless what they make. All that matters to them is specious proclamations and tremendous disappointment once the product is released.

    Wall Street will pepper the channels with slivers of truth, leaving investors to create the hyperbole in their own minds as the waves of commissioned wealth rise and fall on the reality that Capitalism has become such a farce; imagined money being passed off as if it were real.

    Want the truth? There’s an app for that.

  5. If Microsoft loses the NetBook market to a cheap subsidised Slate and the Slate makes inroads into the enterprise via the iPhone’s links to Exchange then Windows 7’s benefits will become irrelevant. Access to corporate apps will be through WebKit and the 100+K existing iPhone apps.

    The issue is how big can/will the iSlate get? Will it still work in a 17″ or 27″ format with a BlueTooth keyboard? Touch is not better than the mouse for fine work or where finger will block the view of the object.

    Maybe an iSlate can use the Magic Mouse and keyboard and that is why they are so small. Is USB a dead issue on the Slate and this is why the Magic Mouse/Keyboard is BlueTooth only

    Does the new, smaller Apple Display connector replace the existing iPhone connector by allowing HD in/out, data in/out and power in?

  6. Dream all you want about the purported Microsoft Courier. There’s just one problem: it doesn’t exist. It’s dreamware, a concept embodied in a Flash movie and nothing more. It’s Microsoft’s desperate effort to “freeze the market” because they’re hopelessly behind. If they can’t make a phone, can’t make a Zune work, can’t get Windows Mobile to even be less than five years behind, how can you expect Microsoft to even create a Courier, which would require an OS with the level of sophistication that even exceeds OS-X?

    It doesn’t exist.

  7. I was thinking they would be using LightPeak.
    Maybe that’s for the second model. Would first need to add it to all the Mac Pros and the iMacs. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

    “Why do you have to come out second making you look like you had to produce a slightly different version of the same thing, thanks to Apple!”

    Duh. Cause that’s what they do.
