Virgin Plans Launch of iPad only magazine -Now What’s Next?


What’s next now? I don’t think it will be very long before airlines remove all that paper stuff from the magazine pouch and just have an iPad instead [or an equivalent or better decide].

The device can be used for:

1. To hold airlines own website which does not need to be printed any more. It just needs to be updated on the iPad

2. The device can hold it’s updated food menus

3. The device can hold deals and offers from other advertisers that sign up with the airlines

4. The device can hold movies, music etc. The device can also connect wirelessly with the server and can media of all sorts can be accessed from there

5. The device can make existing screens redundant as people can just use these devices instead to entertain themselves. This also have a lot of advantage as people can hold it the way they want, in the angle they want etc. They don’t have to worry about the person in front of their seat constantly reclining the seat!

6. They may not even need to buy newspapers and magazines as their electronic edition can be accessed from the iPad like device

7. People can browse Internet and connect to other sites. They don’t need to worry about lugging their own laptops in the flights and squeeze them in the limited space they have.

8. Competitive advantage for Airlines introducing this.

Cannot wait myself to see it all happening.

Posting on Posterous from iPad and iPhone

OK, have I told enough as to how enjoyable it is to post/blog on this Posterous blog? It is a great experience to say the least and I look forward to it’s continual evolvement. But sometimes I have the urge to post something from my iPhone or iPad while I am browsing the Internet. I just want to have the luxury of having the bookmarklet available when I need it. So I just added the existing Posterous bookmarklet to both my iPhone and iPad.


Now while I am browsing through Internet and want to post something through the blog, all I have to do is invoke these bookmarklets to post to Posterous. The results are below.                                              

I pray that Sachin Agarwal doesn’t come and kill me for posting the iPhone image :). Obviously the bookmarklet was never meant to be used on my iPhone and hence the issue with the size of the pop up window but it still does the job until there is a bookmarklet created specially for iPhone.
