Countdown to iPad – Farewell to Poingo (Use Case 43)

iPad - taking learning to a new level
iPad - taking learning to a new level
One of the most clever interactive technologies I have encountered can be seen at mypoingo.com. A year of so ago I had the opportunity to provide my youngest 2 glorious OOH-n-AAH! filled days. We immediately fell for the quirky Poingo charm. So much so that we set out to buy her some of her own books. That’s when the magic started to fade. I soon discovered this singular experience to be truly rare indeed, as only a couple of titles were available. Continue reading

Crazy iPad Numbers: Nearly Half a Million Orders Already?

iPadOrders

More amazing iPad pre-order and pre-sales numbers being reported at the end of this week.  Numbers and things that stand out:

  • Close to 250,000 pre-orders
  • Guesstimates of roughly the same amount of in-store pickup reservations.
  • The fact that these estimates do not even include orders from enterprise, schools, or small businesses.  I imagine their may well be quite significant iPad interest in those last two sectors at least.

I think these numbers – if they end up being even close to accurate – are just one of a growing number of signs that the iPad is going to be another big hit for Apple.

Wall Street Journal’s iPad Edition – $18 a Month?

StackedPapers

Yikes – I’m not a WSJ reader, but the rumored price point for the Wall Street Journal’s upcoming customized iPad version strikes me as quite high.  I don’t follow their print and online pricing much either, but from what I can gather the $18/month iPad version (if that’s accurate) would be around twice as much as their current online subscription rate. One of the funny things about this is that the price rumor is from the WSJ itself.

There’s been lots of talk of the iPad as a ‘savior’ for the newspaper and magazine industry – and I think there’s likely a lot of potential for that to come true, but I also think publications are going to need to find the right price points for iPad readers.  I am very anxious to see how other blue-chip titles get priced, and how the WSJ compares.

Any regular WSJ readers care to weigh in on that rumored price point?
