Apple to Introduce a Tablet?

Get your own name, Jobs!

Apple, the computer-maker-turned-cult, is holding another one of its product unveilings tomorrow. As per usual with such spectacles, executives are tight-lipped, bloggers are hysterical, and the rumor mill runs furiously. Some believe Apple will announce a fancy new iPod; others claim that the Beatles’ catalogue is finally coming to iTunes, Apple’s online music store. But there’s another rumor, and one we at Tablet Magazinefind troubling: Apple, whisper some techno-soothsayers, will soon introduce a new product, a cross between an iPod and a laptop computer, a flat-screened beauty designed for watching movies on the go and speedily surfing the web. The product’s alleged name? Tablet.

We’re a little bit flattered, of course. But we’re also concerned. Is the Internet big enough for both of us? We’ll soon see. And, by the way, have you heard about Jeffrey Goldberg’s biography of Judah Maccabee, forthcoming from Nextbook Press? We’re thinking we’ll call it the MacBook.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
