    Default Tuesday Morning News

    <img class="alignnone" title="Dark blue Steve " src="http://www.walyou.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/steve-jobs-font-art.jpg" alt="" width="496" height="383" />

    Good morning ladies and gentlemen...well...gentlemen. We start off today's news with a question that I have asked myself many'a drunk nights...would my MacBook make a good hat? Luckily i've never been drunk enough to try it. However it seems that Apple have poached an expert in <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2010/03/15/apple-hires-expert-in-wearable-computing/">'wearable clothing'</a>. I only hope that these new computer clothes are machine washable.

    Well the gentleman's agreement between Apple and Google is officially dead in the freakin water. <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2010/03/14/google-product-manager-rj-pittman-defects-to-apple/">Apple has poached</a> a senior Google Director of Project Management. I wonder what colour shirt Apple will make him wear?

    With the release date of the iPad coming very soon (sooner if you're getting through a certain Melbournite who's going to NY) Worldofapple decided to release an article. <a href="http://news.worldofapple.com/archives/2010/03/15/five-arguments-for-and-against-the-ipad/">Five arguments for...and against the iPad</a><!--more-->

    Apple opened up pre-orders for the iPad this weekend and they are suspected to have sold....wait for it...<a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/apple-estimated-to-have-sold-152k-ipad-over-weekend/33632?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=feed&am p;utm_campaign=Feed%3A+cultofmac%2FbFow+%28Cult+of +Mac%29">152,000</a>. Congrats to Apple...your marketing team has done it again.

    Though lets face it...anyone can simply buy an iPad. But if you really want to prove your douchy qualities then you have to own a <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/03/15/worlds-first-diamond-ipad-tries-to-deliver-that-magical-experie/">diamond iPad. </a> It's only $20,000 but I wonder if that includes postage and handling?

    Given the technology of the iPad can we determine a future path for other Apple products? Will the iPad influence, say, the Apple TV. Whilst always relegated by Steve as a 'hobby' <a href="http://theappleblog.com/2010/03/15/the-next-apple-tv-drawing-inspiration-from-the-ipad/?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=feed&amp;utm _campaign=Feed%3A+TheAppleBlog+%28TheAppleBlog%29" >theappleblog.com </a>looks at what the next Apple TV could look like.

    With the release of the iPhone a number of websites went out of their way to create mobile friendly sites that were sans flash. It seems that the <a href="http://mediamemo.allthingsd.com/20100315/for-npr-the-ipad-means-a-new-app-and-a-new-web-site/">upcoming release of the iPad</a> is leading to that same scramble.

    It's impressive to see the new Mac sales increase <a href="http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/03/15/february_mac_sales_up_43_apple_on_track_for_2_9m_i n_quarter.html">43% in February.</a> So to all those who bought new Macs last months...welcome to the family.

    How are your iPhone typing skills? Well this guy made a video of <a href="http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2010/03/ridiculously-fast-iphone-typist-shames-soft-keyboard-haters/"> how fast he can type</a>. I'm pretty sure he's faster than me. Is he faster than YOU?

    It's wearable computing, not wearable clothing. I'm an expert in wearable clothing.
