2. Steve’s BlogWorld Experience

3.Today’s Apple keynote
Steve and Mikee provide a solid breakdown as it applies to Apple’s keynote presentations on Wednesday. Dave sits back and enjoys the conversation. Devices and items discussed include: FaceTime for the Mac, iLife ‘11, Mac OS X Lion, the Mac App Store, and the newly designed MacBook Air. Tune in to see if you need to pick any of these up or if you are considering upgrading some existing software.
Verizon is going to be selling the latest tablet device by Samsung. The upcoming Galaxy Tab will sell for $599 or $630. With Verizon already announcing plans to sell the iPad next year, it’s definitely a questionable move on Samsung and Verizon’s part. Another dimension is that the Galaxy Tab is running the Android OS, an OS Google has stated as not great for a tablet device.
Microsoft continues its international philanthropic approach to conducting business. Microsoft is going to be providing free and legit software licenses to nonprofits that current use pirated software. Is this a good move for Microsoft? Is Microsoft doing this for the PR benefits? The crew brings up some interesting points about piracy and helping nonprofits out.
