I bought a Stylus in a Verizon store that seems okay. - Francine Hardaway

What's wrong with iBook? - Stephen Pickering
Samsung tablet, powered by Android. - Hugh MacLeod
there are so many OHTER and better distributors of eTextbooks - studentforce
Apple has been training people on iOS UI for a while. First the phone (training wheels), then the iPad, followed by Lion, new Apple TV, etc. MS has a long way to go but can eventually achieve this if enough businesses buy into Windows 8. - Alex de Soto

haha :) - Susan Beebe
Apps are a Fast Food Market - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'm so old I can remember when Steve Gilmor used to talk about whether Facebook will become more open or not. - Hugh MacLeod
The browser is the engine for many apps in the Android. It's actually brilliant as a single engine so that apps are not as bloated. Everything is just a tab to open. - Aron Michalski
easier to charge for an app via itunes (despite their 30%) than it is to do with an html5 mobile app/site. obviously there are existing subscription/access/paywall models for access to the app, but Apple did make that shockingly easy. - kosso
apps that integrate with the web - Jerome Hughes
Designers learning about touch and other "NUI." Check out this book: http://books.google.com/books... - Alex de Soto

Apps are for creating and consumption and the web is for communicating - Stephen Pickering
Apps are for electrons and the web is for photons. We need both to work together - Stephen Pickering

Someone will have to develop a Mother App to keep track of all the millions of apps that will be available. The Mother App will probably function pretty much like the Web does today. - Alex de Soto
WebKit rocks. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Chrome or a chromy browser is the platform that all the Google stuff works off of. I used to be miffed about it until I saw that one single engine was steering the functions through a central point. Saves space and lets the cloud feed the device. - Aron Michalski
