Wink Did that Mcgraw Hill CEO accidentally slip the name of the tablet?

right at the end of the interview, he says "The Tabloid, err that Tablet"

Tabloid?

Possibly... If you listen he actually says 'Tabloid' twice, once right before the incident where he corrects himself. You can know in approximately 12 hours.

I know Terry, and I know he is a very smart man. He would never slip something up like that. Anyways, all these questions (for the most part) are gone over before the actual live interview, so it is not like it was a question he was not expecting. Basically, Apple probably let Terry know what information he can and can not release to the public and on what date and time he can release it at.

There is absolutely no chance of that being the name. Old people mix up words like that all the time, that's all it is.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there a small company using the name Iphone before the iPhone? If so, I'm sure Apple took care of paying for the rights. In this case though, I highly doubt "tabloid" is what The Tablet will be called. Sounds like mongloid.

No. Tabloid doesn't have positive associations.

Correct. Old people tend to do it all the time.

"Tabloid" is old geek-speak something like a tablet, but not really a tablet.

So it might be something a little different to what he would normally call a "tablet". I wonder how it will not quite be a tablet?

I call BS. Remember, the ATT CEO never saw the iPhone until after he signed the contract with Apple.

Your hotness meter is out of whack. She's fairly attractive, but I wouldn't say hot describes her.

That isn't a pic of her from what I understand, unless you can provide a link to the Maxim website.
