McGraw-Hill CEO Confirms Apple Tablet, iPhone OS Based, Going to Be "Terrific"





In an interview with CNBC, McGraw-Hill's CEO confirms that their textbooks will be on the Apple Tablet and it will be an iPhone OS based machine. When asked about their textbooks being on the Apple tablet, Terry MrGraw responds (2m 50s):
Quote:
"Yeah, Very exciting. Yes, they'll make their announcement tomorrow on this one. We have worked with Apple for quite a while. And the Tablet will be based on the iPhone OS and so it will be transferable. So what you are going to be able to do now is we have a consortium of e-books. We have 95% of our materials in e-book format. So now with the tablet you're going to open up the higher education market, the professional market. The tablet is just going to be terrific."

Why do people who read iphone OS automatically assume there isn't a major overhaul with 4.0?

Can we at least wait to see the damn device?

Nope. It's a well-timed Apple PR leak.

Of cause it's going to be iPhone OS, most likely iPhone OS 4. It is so obvious.

And I bet there are people who STILL have doubts that the tablet exists.

amazing that he feels he can make an announcement like that. Wouldn't he be on some sort of NDA?
Unless Apple has commissioned him to say it for some reason...

This is a controlled leak. After working with Apple some time you think he would have done this by himself? Also, it is a good way to get that stock price up. Which it is as of my writing(1-26-10). This is corporate America baby.

Unless this was a sanctioned leak by Apple, that guy is kind of a dumbass.

I mean, he couldn't wait one more day to talk about it? He couldn't wait one more day to schedule that interview?

Dumbass.


EDIT:
The more I think about it, this was a planned leak by Apple.

Terry, do you see that pack of ninja assassins driving up to your door? Of course you don't. You won't see or hear a thing.

THING IS...

What we will see over this coming year is a merging of iPhone OS and Mac OS... the lines between them will become more blurred.

If this wasn't sanctioned I hope he doesn't suffer too long at the hands of the Apple Ninja Attack Squad.
