Steve Jobs Heads up Tablet Development...Maybe

A report from the Wall Street Journal has been making waves today all across the tech blogging community. The article claims that the ever-popular “inside sources” informed the WSJ that Jobs has been working hard to head up the design of the iTablet since his return from sick leave in June. It also says that some Apple engineers have been chafing under the unfamiliar yoke of Steve's management style.

Most interesting is the news that, apparently, Jobs ordered the tablet killed twice previously. The first time was due to a concern about low battery life. The second time was because the tablet had insufficient memory. The WSJ's sources made the tablet out to be an extremely crucial project for Apple, who hasn't released a new product line since the iPhone.

The length of time since a new release is what makes this story, and all the iTablet rumors, easier to believe. Apple is close to finishing some new product, and it isn't a batch of iPods. Whether it's a tablet or something completely different, I'd be willing to bet my hat (Note: I don't actually have a hat) that Cupertino is cooking up something new. As one of the world's leading tech innovators, they pretty much have to be.

Of course, it's perfectly possible that new product isn't a tablet. In an email to the WSJ, Jobs stated that “much of your information is incorrect”. Being Steve Jobs, he didn't explain what was incorrect or refute anything outright. Say what you will about Jobs, or Apple's corporate ethics, they are damned good at keeping us guessing.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
