More on the iPad revolution

You can almost hear the panting when people write about the iPad. It’s right up there with sliced bread in mid-December 2010 culture. It’ll probably be over by January, so here’s some more on the iPad before it’s too late.

The Huffington Post is reporting that the iPad will revolutionize magazines. Mark Pasetsky argues that smart celebrity magazine publishers will start testing their monthly print cover ideas on weekly iPad editions to see which celebrities get the most favourable response. He also argues that publishers will use the iPad editions to put ads on the front cover, something that he describes as cringeworthy for print editions.

Elsewhere, MinOnline is reporting that “tablet” sales are expected to hit 81 million by 2012. The iPad is likely to remain the “overwhelming favourite” tablet.

There. You can breathe normally again.
