  • 10:29 Until proven otherwise, I’ll remain dubious that people are going to flock to buy a $1k+ tablet so they can read e-books on it. #
  • 10:50 A v. interesting (if long) piece by @lessig on copyright, culture and the Google settlement: is.gd/79Moz #
  • 13:33 Was iPad really the best name they could come up with for the new Apple tablet? #
  • 14:03 The iPad will use the ePub format? Not a surprise, but still good news. #
  • 14:06 Having what will effectively be iTunes for books is a bigger deal than being able to read them on your giant iPhone. #
  • 14:23 $499 for the base iPod without 3G, meaning rather than being a big iPhone it’s a big iTouch. #
  • 14:27 If you want 3G with your iPad, it’s an extra $130, plus you get to pay AT&T a monthly fee ($29.99 for unlimited data). #
  • 14:28 And of course there are more expensive models. #
  • 14:29 RT @colleenlindsay: twitpic.com/101dw9 – Apple #iPad pricing chart. #dbw #apple #
  • 14:30 @colleenlindsay From what I’ve read, you’re stuck with AT&T for the iPad’s data plan, but it’s a cancel anytime contract. #
  • 14:34 Let’s see, full-color iPad with 3G is $629, while a greyscale Kindle DX is $489. Looks like trouble! #
  • 14:36 If you don’t care about being able to download books everywhere you can get 3G, it’s only $499 iPad vs. $489 Kindle DX. Ouch. #
  • 14:41 We’ve now reached the point where I once again stop caring about Apple until the details of the iBook store are all laid out. #
  • 14:46 Nice choice of days to make a big announcement, RWA. bit.ly/amSEhi #
