Netly: The Third Screen

The upcoming Apple device is a “Tablet Rasa”

Posted on: September 23, 2009

imagesApple’s rumored tablet has become all things to all people. I mean, honestly, what can’t this marvelous, as-yet unseen and unannounced device do?

Depending on who’s speculating, it will save the music business, fix the newspaper business, and, in today’s imaging of Cupertino’s tabula rasa, at O’Reilly Radar, reboot the book business.

It’s a fascinating time in the history of media. The situation has become so desperate that virtually every media company is looking to Steve Jobs to leads it to the promised land. No matter how great this mythic device is, it’s bound to be a let down. That said, I think it will totally bail out the magazine business.
