Apple's Steve Jobs Defends iPad, App Store

http://www.eweek.com

Apple's Steve Jobs allegedly defended his company's practices with regard to the iPad and its third-party developer policies, in a series of e-mails sent to Valleywag editor Ryan Tate. The e-mails, very likely sent by Jobs himself, suggest that Apple's policies protect users from programs that steal private data and unnecessarily drain power. In addition, Jobs supposedly suggested that third-party developers and publishers who disagree with Apple's policies are more than welcome to not develop on the iPad. Apple CEO Steve Jobs saw fit over the weekend to drill down into his company’s philosophy behind the iPad and the App Store—although the venue for the discussion couldn’t have been further from the carefully stage-managed events at which he usually appears. Ryan Tate, editor of the tech-gossip blog Valleywag, found himself driven into a rage by an iPad advertisement, and e-mailed Jobs in the early hours of May 15; Jobs apparently responded within hours, touching off a wide-ranging e-discussion. The iPad ad spot praises the tablet PC as “revolutionary,” while many sets of hands demonstrate its touch-screen capabilities for Web surfing and media viewing.

Steve Jobs Says iPad Revolution Means ‘Freedom from Porn’

http://www.lifesitenews.com

Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computers, says his company will not be a party to the pornography industry and hopes that the iPad and iPhone revolution will help lead to a porn-free world. Jobs reiterated his position in a heated e-mail exchange with Ryan Tate, a writer for Gawker.com, which follows news and gossip in Silicon Valley and elsewhere. Tate, who admitted that he was home alone and slightly inebriated at the time, took issue with a television ad calling the iPad a “revolution” and fired off an e-mail to Jobs. “If Dylan [American songwriter Bob Dylan is one of Jobs’ favorite musicians] was 20 today, how would he feel about your company? Would he think the iPad had the faintest thing to do with ‘revolution?’ Revolutions are about freedom,” Tate wrote, not expecting a response from Jobs. However, Jobs did respond to Tate, triggering an e-mail duel. “Yep, freedom from programs that steal your private data. Freedom from programs that trash your battery. Freedom from porn. Yep, freedom,” responded Jobs. “The times they are a changin’, and some traditional PC folks feel like their world is slipping away. It is.”

Is the iPad worth the money?

http://www.wbtv.com

It is the hot grown-up toy of the year so far. The Apple iPad is a multimedia device which, to put it plainly, does more than an iPod and less than a laptop. It is only a half-inch thick and weighs a pound and a half. It allows you to surf the internet, write an e-mail, map out a location, keep tabs on your calendar, read books and watch movies. However, the iPad STARTS at $500. Should you shell out that kind of cash on something you might not need? We asked an expert. Nancy Muir wrote "iPad For Seniors for Dummies" in just over three weeks. Apple wouldn't allow her to see the iPad before it was available to consumers so she had to stand in line on April 3rd when it was released, and then learned about all it can and cannot do in a matter of days. "The first thing I love is the touch screen interface. On the iPad it gives you a decent size screen and you just reach out and move things around rather than using the mouse and I really like that," Muir said. She also likes the 10 hour battery life, the map application, the good quality of the speakers for music, and she likes using it to look at pictures.

Will Apple and AT&T allow iPad tethering?

http://www.zdnet.com

Gizmodo reports that iPhone OS 4 beta 4, released to developers yesterday, includes an option for Internet tethering. The setting is now clearly visible in Settings > General > Network as a button labeled “Set Up Internet Tethering” (pictured). The descriptive text underneath reads: Internet Tethering allows you to share your iPhone’s Internet connection with your computer via Bluetooth or USB. If tethering is actually released next month, AT&T would finally be delivering on its promise almost a year late. Tethering was promised at the end of summer 2009 then at the end of 2009, so excuse me if I sound pessimistic. The real question is how Apple and AT&T will implement iPhone tethering. It’s obvious that AT&T will charge for the service and one need look no further than the data plans available for the iPad 3G for a hint of what’s to come.
