The iPad hype has become full force now that all the iFans are having iFun on their iFad. With 300K units sold during the launch weekend, you can bet we’ll be hearing about it for a while.
Do I want one? No. Not at all. Until Apple offers me something at least comprable to competing tablet PCs running Android or Windows 7 Tablet edition, I won’t even consider it.
Apple offered Live TV.
I was thinking about this the other day while running errands when I wished I could be watching Butler in the Final Four. How great would it be if you could get something like FLO TV streamed to your iPad or iPhone. Or even better, your cable or Satellite TV offered streaming service for all their channels through a native app. I would probably pay extra each month on my Comcast bill if they offered that.
I know that Sling has an app that let’s you watch live TV from your sling box, but that requires a piece of hardware hooked up to a dedicated cable/sat box. If anyone else wants to watch TV at home while you’re on the road, someone is going to be dissappointed.
Seriously, how could Apple or broadband operators go wrong? A LIVE TV app seems like a killer app to me!
Just a thought.
(Oh yeah, I still don’t like that iPhads don’t have Flash too!)
