Apple’s January 19th education event brings the iPad to the forefront as an educational tool to replace textbooks and classroom computers.  Apple is once again focusing on the K-12 education market, a market it dominated in the early 1980’s with the Apple II.  But is the iPad really the device Apple is focusing on here?  Or is there another device in Apple’s future that this event is paving the way for?  I think Apple needs a new device, I call the ePad.

Kindle Wireless Reading Device – Review

On February 29, 2008, in Review, by Roger Born

Kindle Wireless Reading Device
Company: Amazon

Price: $399.00
