Interesting business model for eBook

Earli­er this week I found an eBook over on Zen­Hab­its. The book looks inter­est­ing and I’m look­ing for­ward to giv­ing it a read, but the think that caught my eye was the busi­ness mod­el; you can get the book for free. The whole book, as a down­load­able eBook. Free. Now, there is a Premi­um ver­sion […]

The Steve Jobs Way

Tomor­row Apple will likely announce a new look and feel for the Mac­Book Air and an update (per­haps sig­ni­fic­ant) to their flag­ship oper­at­ing sys­tem, OSX.

Maybe you will too!

Quartet on iPad — Sweet Dream [Video]

Happy Fri­day! Found this earli­er in the week and decided it’d be per­fect for my cur­rent fas­cin­a­tion with iPad music apps. Four musi­cians play­ing amp­li­fied iPads as a quar­tet. Quite nice! The iPad Orches­tra from Alex Shpil on Vimeo. Oh, and the app they’re play­ing is Seline HD — I’ve not checked it out yet, […]
