We’re running a teensy weensy bit behind on today’s Martini Hour post. Technical difficulties, blah blah. It’s forthcoming and junk.
In the meanwhile I wanted you to know, when this episode does hit the stands, you’ll like it. Cuz we have something really terrific in store. This is one of my favorite shows ever. And for a change it has nothing to do with CS5 or Photoshop or Illustrator or anything Adobe. Much as we love them and that (seriously, big love), we decided to devote this week’s show to Apple and its much ballyhooed iPad. And—if you’ll forgive me the rather obvious visual analogy—we’re turning this particular hot topic on its head.
Newsweek (my favorite 3-page tabloid) printed the recent cover story: “What’s So Great about the iPad? Everything.” and even adopted an Apple-like design template. But, as if to hedge its bets, the magazine wisely sold the back cover to Amazon for its Kindle. (Or perhaps Amazon wisely bought the space?)
Yes, we like the iPad. But we’re not so sure about the “Everything.” part. So we brought in the two best-informed experts we know, Macworld editors Chris Breen and Ben Long to duke it out. Only they went and agreed with each other! And in (might I add?) hilarious style.
Anyway, keep an ear peeled. It’ll be out soon.
