We recorded right after Steve Jobs finished his 90-minute announcement of the Apple iPad, Apple's new tablet computer. It's variably impressive depending on who you are, but will anyone buy it? We discuss. Also, it's over for the Mars rover Spirit. At least the roving part is over, but it's still alive and doing science.

Hey Buzz Crew,


Just listened to episode 1511 where Miles from Texas describes the Pixel Qi (pronounced “chee”) display.


Many people don’t realize that Pixel Qi’s technology is already used in over a million devices: the XO Laptop from Nicholas Negroponte’s One Laptop per Child. I got an XO in 2007 from the first Give 1 Get 1 program, and while the display isn’t perfect — the colors aren’t as rich as an LCD, and the black-and-white mode isn’t as reflective as e-ink — it’s certainly impressive. I’m sure this proven technology has advanced quite a bit over the years, and am excited to see commercial success branching from the innovative OLPC project.


Love the show!

Adam from Chicago


PS: the XO is also widely regarded as spurring the netbook trend in low-cost, internet-connected laptops.
