As we all know by now, Apple has once again set the technology world afflutter with the unveiling of the iPad. (Important Side Note: Dear Steve Jobs-Next time you need to name a product, you might want to invite a woman or two to be part of the naming committee, just to make sure you get the female perspective on these things. Just saying.)
A couple of days after the announcement I was out to lunch, and I heard a couple of woman discussing this latest technological innovation.
“I wonder what kind of impact this will have on the publishing industry,” said the first woman. “I wonder if we’ll eventually stop having print books because everything has gone digital. Or if we’ll still have libraries anymore.”
“Well,” replied the second woman thoughtfully, “hopefully I’ll be dead by then.”
