WORLD’S FIRST: GET A REAL 1876 STEVE JOBS SLATE

IMG_0245_2

I just posted in UK eBay this unique item for an auction sale:

A 1876 Welsh old slate from the original roof of one of the three Cathedral Villas (13 Nun Street) in St. Davids, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK.

Hand painted by famous British-American Award Winning illustrator Deborah Withey.

The original slate pictures Apple’s CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs holding, in a world-first-premiere-show, the upcoming Apple iSlate, that will be presented in San Francisco, California, on January 27, 20910.

The money from this auction will be given to a national charity foundation.

Size: 10,3 x 12,3 inches.

The slate comes from the original roof of a 1876 house constructed with stones and slates from St Davids Cathedral, that was built upon the site of St David’s 6th century monastery and has been a site of pilgrimage and worship for many hundreds of years.

Get it!

REAL STATE BUSINESS MOVING TO MOBILE

trulia-layar-on-iphone

When the CEO of Google says that very soon they will make more money with Mobile than with Internet, imagine a Mobile Tablet and you will understand why the Apple coming tablet could be a dramatic innovation.

Business are moving to Mobile.

Realtor, like Zillow and Sawbuck, are taking their listings to the iPhone.

If you use Realtor, you will be able to access to about 4 million listings across the United States that they say are updated every 15 minutes.

Realtor say the new app will allow home shoppers to search for open houses within a 20-mile radius, sorted by location or date. Users can take camera-phone photos of listings as they tour them, assign them star ratings, jot notes on the phone, and quickly post listings to their Twitter or Facebook pages–or e-mail them to friends, family and their buyer’s agent.

Many newspapers still think that the only strategy to save their classifieds is to move them to Internet.

Well, too late.

Move tham to Mobile.

That’s the future.

Pay walls for news will produce ‘more corpses than successes’, says report

With pay walls (or the discussion of) popping up right, left and centre in newsrooms at the moment, a new report from business and technology analysis firm Ovum won’t allay the fears of many media executives.

“Paywall experiments by traditional media in 2010 are virtually guaranteed to produce more corpses than successes,” it states in the opening line.

If the trend towards pay walls persists, there will be separation of “wheat from the chaff” when it comes to “premium” content, suggests the report:

The lessons from the web are simple; if content is not highly differentiated, or information premium and tradable, search technologies such as Google exist to provide an access channel to a zero cost source of identical or comparable content. The pay wall will act as a market-driven audit tool for what content is and is not premium and 2010 will see news and media organisations reassess their view of the online value of their content portfolios.

But online video and catch-up TV services have a greater opportunity to demand a pay-per-view premium, the report adds.

More happily for Ovum’s industry, the firm forecasts that paid content models will be a boost to service and technology vendors looking to create new platforms/payment systems and technologies rather than the media companies implementing them.

Ovum’s report suggests that Apple’s forthcoming Tablet technology could marry together the publishers hopes for paid content and the capabilities of the technology vendors:

Apple has demonstrated for the music industry that the combination of strong media retail platform with a consistent user experience across multiple, integrated devices can draw consumers away from free, but less elegant consumption models.

The news industry will be hoping that Apple can deliver a similar experience in 2010. If it fails to deliver, radical restructuring of the news media supply chain will be needed.

MediaShift: How will an ‘iTunes for magazines’ work?

MediaShift looks at how a digital store or an “iTunes for magazines” announced in December might work and make use of Apple’s much-anticipated Tablet touch-screen computer.

The digital magazine project will be led by Time Inc, Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith and News Corporation, but details of what it will offer and how it will work are scant.

This piece takes a look at what’s known about the project, how the business model might work and what it means for the print magazine industry.

THE APPLE TABLET IS COMING, SO OUR NEWSROOMS MUST BE READY

Apple-Tablet-Confirmed-in-Australia

Yes, the Apple Tablet, “Slate” or “Guide” is coming.

Like the ones from HP, Dell and others.

But, let’s remember a few basic ideas:

1. The problem is the quality, exclusivity and accessibility of our content, not the platforms.

2. Kindle or Apple tablet are not the solutions.

3. As Jeff Jarvis said: “Newspaper publishers must unleash their news on every device possible. No single gadget will be their saviour”

So, information does need “paper jails” nor new technological jails.

What what need to worry is not about these new devices, but the old assembly-line-one deadline-one platform newsroom management system that still prevails in 99% of our newspapers.

We need more “one kitchen, several restaurants” newsroom multimedia models.

We need to focus in multimedia content management.

We need to migrate from media companies to “information engines.”

And from readers to audiences and communities.

Technology is not the problem, nor the solution.

So, welcome the tablets, and better if they become as soon as possible rubber tablets.

And let’s concentrate in how to migrate from monomedia to multimedia newsrooms.

Be ready!
