Steve Jobs was pretty adamant when he told investors during their recent Q4 earnings call that competitor 7″ tablets will be DOA–dead on arrival. Canadian tech company RIM announced their PlayBook a while back to take on the iPad.
Business Week has the latest news on the PlayBook pricing and some strong words from RIM Co-CEO Jim Balsillie. Here are the juicy bits from the article:

I’ll be honest. I’m neither a fan of Facebook nor of Mark Zuckerberg. I find Facebook’s privacy policies to be abhorrent, their developers to be incompetent, and business model to be sketchy. Given his iPad comment last week though, I think I may start respecting him more.

While browsing in the App Store the other day, this particular item caught my eye:
The blurb for the app doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in its ability to teach English (or even Englsih). In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if a child’s (or ESL student’s) English comprehension didn’t decrease after using this app. What on Earth does “pronunciation of the integration of memory enhancement” mean?
At least it’s free.
