Apple – The Journey from iPod to iMat

with 2 comments

While the world is going from minis to micros to nanos, Apple is doing just the opposite. The (recently) launched iPad is an indication. A bestselling innovation called the iPod has given way to something called an iPad. Now netizens are wondering what would be next. And when it comes to netizens, you cannot help but find creative souls lurking all around. Have a look at the following pic-story of how Apple will go from iPod to iMat – the move from micro to mini to the all-encompassing.

The journey of Apple

Now enough of Apple, let us come to Swans. I am currently going through a book by N.N. Taleb, namely ‘Black Swan’. A book on the human psychology of generalization of facts and figures and how that can create unwanted results. It speaks about the nature of Man to simplify the past and use those to predict the future – a problem so well embedded in the human mind that it is bound to bring troubles if not handled properly. Taleb wants us only to make note of the facts, and not try to infer anything from that – a task so herculean that we would be extremely tired even if we do it for just one afternoon.  I will be back with more on the book in my next post, when I complete the book. Till then, have a good time.
