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):
"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."

Oh boy, he is going to learn why he shouldn't have necessarily done that.

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...

Wow... way to steal Apple's thunder, McGraw-Hill.
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.
