Apple iPad Announcement Podcast Posted

Apple has posted the podcast of the iPad announcement from last week. You can download the video to your Mac, PC, iPhone, or iPod by subscribing to the Apple Keynotes podcast feed.

I skipped watching the iPad event as a streaming video so I can download the event to my Apple TV so I can watch it in my living room on a 42-inch TV. If you can't see Apple's keynote events live, then a TV in your living room is the next best thing.

1SRC Podcast 204

This week on the 1SRC Podcast, I cover the recently announced Pre smart(er)phone powered by Palm webOS. I talk about what is really cool about the new hardware and software as well as some of the things that I don't. (I'm not a big fan of sliders. Maybe the Pre's slide out keyboard will be better than the sliders on the Tungsten T, T2, and T3.) I also cover some of the things that I really want to know more about, like how Synergy works, how will the Pre sync with a Mac or PC without going out to the cloud, and whether or not there will be tools to sync over a wired connection.

Foleo Rants

Listeners of my weekly 1SRC.com podcast know that I prefer to take a measured approach to covering what's going on in the Palm community. However in the last few weeks there have been reports of Palm's Foleo being used. Allow me to recap for you.

Back in New York at the DigitalLife conference where Palm announced the new Centro consumer-oriented smartphone, Palm CEO Ed Colligan was asked a question about what was happening with the Foleo after it was disclosed that it was going to be canceled in an on camera interview. Mr. Colligan said that the company could possibly release a Foleo-like device in the future and that he still uses his all the time.

Similarly at the JP Morgan Small/Mid Cap conference that was held in Boston, Massachusetts, Palm CFO Andy Brown indicated that he has been using the new Palm Centro for the last two months and that it works great with his Foleo.

Last week blog GearDiary.com published photos of the Foleo in action, including photos of the configuration page, file manager, and the Opera web browser. In one of the web browser photos it is clearly visible that the date on the article was November 14, 2007.

Three separate instances of the Foleo in action after it was canceled. Foleo Fanatics can get their rant on with the following two segments from 1SRC.com podcasts 154 and 156.

Just for the record, I do agree with all the business reasons that Palm sited for not doing the Foleo right now. The decision to focus on Palm OS II and then later using the new Linux-based operating system in both the Treo smartphone and any future Foleo or Foleo-like device has some really appealing synergies that I'm interested in seeing in action; such as portable applications (between Treo and Foleo devices), file browsing across devices, and the ability for the Foleo to operate as an independent low-cost (read: sub-$400) computing platform for mobile business professionals, educators and students, and busy individuals.

For more news, analysis, reviews, and commentary on the Palm community, check out my weekly 1SRC.com Palm Powered podcast. You can subscribe to the show with your podcast catcher of choice with the 1SRC.com Podcast RSS feed.
