Apple's Tablet PC

The tech news room is flooding over the release of Apple’s tablet, with Steve Job claiming this is the most important thing he has done. If rumors are to be believed, this will bring a revolution in the textbooks and newspaper industry.

With the new tablet device that is debuting next week, Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs is betting he can reshape businesses like textbooks, newspapers and television much the way his iPod revamped the music industry

With some of us still adjusting to the e-book revolution, looks like it is a matter of time before we will have to leap frog and accept the electronic media even for textbooks and newspapers. What is appealing is the possibilities it brings. Instant access to teachers/resources/authors, get your questions answered on the spot. Face recognition technology to remember you, your needs and automatically adjust the environment. Add to it key less, touch screen and hand writing recognition technology.

One ipod per kid seems to be the norm these days, one tablet per kid might also materialize in future.
