ibooks on the iphone and ipad

This looks very nice; can keep the kids occupied I suppose.

No one ever mentions climate change these days, it seems to be last year’s thing. Isn’t the constant recharging of batteries on all these mobile devices, er, excuse me, bad for the planet? That sounds so 2010!

Most normal homes now have 2-? mobile devices on practically all the time – smart phones, netbooks, laptops, ipads, tablets… wall flatscreen TVs in many rooms… just sitting there using up a bit of power.

I know some older people who switch off their mobile phone when not using it… this is a bit weird as they cannot be called. Or perhaps that is the idea.

This mania for social media, always connected, being rammed down everyone’s throat now (even in print ads for saucepans etc), I always think you should look at the bottom line, which is device manufacturers profits and service providers profits… marketers and the app developers are along for the ride. Perhaps social media will be ‘so 2011‘…

This Pooh story on ibook for  iphone/ipad is a modern objectification of a nice old book into this advanced multimedia object. It is all a sort of training for future connectedness, and immersion in modernity. Which is not what Pooh was about at all (the new Disney cartoon versions have Tigger as lead character, and a scooter girl being active).

But of course a book is technology. Adapt and survive.

Our tech writer Azeema is blogging here about some of these ereader devices over the next week or two. We were going to have a section on ereaders and ebooks, maybe later.

Story Lite is a publishing format, and we are producing an ipad version soon. So who are we to talk about energy use?
