Apple – Amazon War

The coming of the Kindle made a huge impact on publishers, authors and all the users around the globe. Kindle as we all know is an Amazon product which already has revived the book industry. Before the coming of the print culture, the society used to listen to ballads and folklore along with poetry. Then came in the print culture which sought to revolutionize the world. And then we could say came in the Amazon Kindle which was a huge milestone for books. You could read books, listen to books, carry multiple books around with you anywhere and anytime.
By seeing the Kindle flourish, many tech firms wanted to try their hand on ebook readers.

This year is the year of ebook readers. Sony, Barnes and Nobles and now even the Apple iPad is in the market.

Apple’s iPad will yet once again change the way we read books. Recently there has even been a controversy that the iPad would be able to read out loud all books in the EPUB format, which is quite unique.

The dynamic UI along with the revolutionary iBooks store will definitely give Amazon quite a lot of heat. Amazon even owns Audible.com which provides audio books. But as the iPad would be able to read all the EPUB books, audible is sure to go down.

iPad even boasts a huge 9.7 inch screen and has signed up five of the worlds best publishers. Amazon’s kindle is only an ebook reader whereas the iPad is an all in one device. And if Apple allows the Kindle app to be there on the iPad then people could have all their already purchased ebooks on the iPad. Great , isn’t it?

Amazon would have to come up with something new in order to compete with the iPad.

Google Tablet could be named gTablet

With every passing day the rumors about the Google Tablet keep getting better. Google even released a few pictures showing how Chrome OS would look on a tablet which possibly gave a sneak peek at the Google Tablet.

The naming thing with Google has always been simple, clean and to the point as it’s search engine. For example mail is just Gmail . The two things which Google does while naming is either put a “g” in front of it or simply call it the “Google Product” . ( Except the Nexus One)

We are guessing that the name for the Google Tablet is going to be gtablet or simply Google Tablet.
Even gslate looks promising but we all are pretty much sure that Google wouldn’t pick pad for this after the revolts against the iPad.

Steve Jobs:- Google’s Dont Be Evil is Bull****

During that Apple town hall meeting we mentioned earlier this week CEO Steve Jobs reportedly had some choice words regarding Google that left little doubt about how the outspoken executive sees the competition.

Don’t be evil? “Bullshit” Jobs said, after which he was reportedly rewarded with a big round of applause from the gathered throng of Apple employees.

Also about Google, Jobs said that company “entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them.”

Jobs also singled out Adobe, calling the company “lazy” because, in his opinion, “they have all this potential to do interesting things but they just refuse to do it.” Jobs also criticized Flash for being buggy. When a Mac crashes, it’s usually because of Flash, he reportedly told the crowd. “The world is moving to HTML5,” he said.

Reports that the town hall meeting was adjourned with a gavel that made a loud Bing sound were completely fabricated and made up by me just now.

Apple released ibooks which is a great way to read and buy books. The app is featured for the iPad.

“It has a bookshelf. In addition there’s a button which is the store — we’ve created the new iBook Store. You can download right onto your iPad.” — Steve Jobs

Five big partners… Penguin, Macmillion, Simon & Shuster… and more.

The format of the books being ePub.

The Voice of the iSlate!

On January 27th Apple is going to release a new product which will most probably change the way people have been interacting with their Computers and Mobile Phones. The release of the iSlate or iPad will mark the beginning of a whole new era of computing!

The iSlate is to be announced during an event to be held at San Francisco.

The iSlate is rumored to have great innovative features such as Huge Screen with IPS technology, iWork compatibility and more. Another feature should be that ,the iSlate must be completely Voice enabled with support for Speech recognition. If iWork is to be accustomed with the iSlate, then Speech recognition will help a lot of business users. Two microphones should be built in which would enhance the use of Skype and other such services. Just by speaking the name of an application, the iSlate must be compatible enough to pop it up.

Microsoft’s Project Natal has been designed to recognize words such as “Good Night” which would just switch it off.
The Apple Tablet must also be compatible with similar technologies.

Voice Input must work with any application which has text input available, just as the Nexus One. Music Search, Hands free Dialing, Posting Tweets by your voice,News,Sports and Weather and Battery Remaining could be great!

In just three days, we’ll find out whether the iSlate does support these features or not!
