The iPad has become a valuable tool for the mobile professional. It can be more valuable still, however, when swaddled in leather, partnered with a Mac mini and other Apple goodies and wrapped in a Mercedes-Benz S600, as Mercedes tuner BRABUS shows us with the iBusiness.
A university professor friend and recent platform-switcher jestingly refers to “the Church of the Mac.” He’s become an enthusiastic Mac evangelist and is perceiving some loose parallels. My learned friend is far from unique in drawing analogies between computer platform affinities and religion.
On the eve of WWDC, a photo showed up on Engadget rumored to be a new Apple product. I wanted for this product to be real. I started dreaming of a $59 price tag and all of the amazingness this product could do for me.
My last visit to an Apple Store was a week ago when I picked up my new iPhone 4 and, though I’ve visited the stores plenty of times before, waiting in line reminded me of what makes Apple’s retail plans such a success.

If you have not already seen this, you have to check it out for yourself. “Apple of My Eye” is a movie short shot and edited entirely on an iPhone 4. That’s right, full production on the iPhone.
Today Steve Jobs unveiled the fourth iteration of the beloved iPhone, dubbed, iPhone 4. It was, of course, the device that we’ve seen leaked in recent weeks, but there’s a lot more to this new phone than meets the eye.
Apple events tend to bring out the giddy-kid-on-Christmas-eve feeling in many of us, and the lines that start at these events reflect that. Here in San Francisco, the WWDC line started no earlier than 6:30PM last night…over 15 hours before the event starts.
The popular music will die down, Jobs will enter, and he’ll start with a few stats about how Apple is doing. But Jobs has an opportunity to open his keynote with one of the best lines he could ever deliver.
I stopped by after work on Friday to snap a few photos of Moscone West receiving the finishing touches of the giant three story tall Apple logo and snap photos of banners hanging inside the conference center. Unfortunately, there were no exposed banners of unannounced products.
