Mindfood iPad app gets readers' clicks and Apple's tick

When tablet computers first arrived on the scene, they were slated as something of a saviour for the ailing magazine industry; a medium that offered the utility of digital technology but actually allowed publishers to make money from it.

Let your fingers do the jabbing

It was revealed by the Herald yesterday that New Zealand Post seems to have designs on the directories business, after it snaffled Yellow's ex-director of sales Greg Murphy and three other national and regional sales managers. But, not one to lie down in the face of adversity *ahem, Google, ahem*, Yellow is still trying to up the ante and has announced the launch of its new, locally developed iPad and iPhone apps.

Apple to confused clients: "Thou shall not show iPad being used in iPad app ads"

Anyone who has had the pleasure of dealing with corporates, government departments or academic institutions presumably knows there are an almost limitless number of seemingly ridiculous rules that have to be obeyed. Many of these rules fly directly in the face of common sense and are generally frustrating time-sucks. But StopPress can't recall a rule that seems quite as ridiculous as this one from Apple.

Apple, the iPad and the 'mutually reinforcing eco-sphere'

New technology has meant that consumers are engaging with media in ways that George Jetson would be proud of. Of course, given the feverish enthusiasm for the iPad, there's already quite a bit of interesting data about it and while the consumers love it, publishers are also rightly excited about the revenue—and creative—possibilities offered by the new medium. So who's buying two of Apple's most popular devices, the iPad and the iPhone? Nielsen surveyed more than 64,000 mobile subscribers in the US to find out.

Kiwis finally get to give iPad the finger, but it's slim pickings on App front

For months the New Zealand tech retailers have been displaying a range of iPad paraphernalia for sale in their stores and, as of today, they actually get to sell the object all that paraphernalia is associated with. But after all the hype, all the talk of publishing revolutions and all the feverish Tweetbooking about Jobs Almighty and his newest hero product, there seems to be a surprising dearth of local applications available on the day of the iPad's release in New Zealand.

Television and the ravages of time-shifting

In this installment of Michael Carney's Marketing Week: As TV watching habits change, audience measurement is changing with it. Is social buzz leading to more ka-ching? Nielsen says 'meh, not really'. Online video is hot. And B2BTV hopes to tap into it for the New Zealand market. Can our internet infrastructure actually handle the iPad? Whitcoulls launches an e-reader. But, without cellular connectivity, will it be able to compete? Data-driven coupons show their worth.

Hark! The iPad hath been released, the feverish purchasing (300,000 on its first day in the US, Apple says) hath begun and the opining, reviewing, analysing and critiquing of one of the world's most talked about devices is well underway. And, overall, it seems the opining, reviewing, analysing and critiquing of this 'game changing' gadget has been very positive.
