Today in Connected Consumer

With one day to go before the big tablet announcement, Apple fanboys can barely contain their excitement. Yesterday, TechCrunch quoted various somebodies quoting Steve Jobs calling the tablet “the most important thing I’ve ever done,” getting everyone all giddy. Today, TC is back with a rumor that the tablet will come with a Barnes & Noble e-book store, which actually makes sense given how Amazon has been acting lately. Meanwhile, magazine publishers are busily preparing digital versions for tablet despite never having seen one. Another brilliantly orchestrated non-marketing campaign by Apple.
