The review title nearly says it all. Scoble and Israel don't simply offer a bunch of opinions. Not that their opinions wouldn't be interesting. They are!
But instead they have meticulously assembled a data trove of evidence pointing to the future. One where we are all connected, always. And its good we are. Interviews, data, devices, software, services...they have really compiled a list of facts a mile long. And I think that is what makes this book the most compelling. Armed with the facts, you can make your own judgment as to what happens when...or if it does for that matter. Or if its good for you or if you will embrace it. While they make a case of what will happen (or rather IS happening), they give you enough data for you to decide on your own.
And its fascinating for marketers to see who and what and how they will market.
Consumers...provides a looking-glass into life not too many years from now.
And techies eat this stuff up because its where we thought we would be by now.
One of the best non-fiction reads in a long time.
10 years ago it would have been fiction...but now it's truly NON fiction...which I think is really cool.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Having had the 1st model over the past few months, I could not wait to get the updated model with quad-core processor, and the thinner/lighter form factor. I must say, after a week of use, I could not be happier. As a tablet alone, it truly is a direct iPad2 replacement in terms of form, fit and function. For Apple lovers, get the iPad, for Android lovers, get the Prime.
When combined with the keyboard dock, this unit has it all. Killer battery life, full keyboard (connected, not an extra accessory to carry around and better battery life instead of less, as you get with a bluetooth keyboard), full USB port for mouse, thumb drives etc and 2 memory card slots (both full size SD and micro SD, very handy).
The rear facing camera takes very nice shots, and the new flash makes it even more useful. The sound is actually quite good and volume level seems to be more than enough. The new IPS+ screen is amazingly sharp and bright. One of my iPad friends was amazed at the screen sharpness and brightness and build quality (always nice to get a Apple fanboy to fondle your new Android device in amazement!).
The new OS (Ice cream Sandwich or ICS)is a bit more refined, and combined with the quadcore CPU, it flies. For people into tablet gaming on the go, this thing has some stunning games out now, and more coming. The fast CPU, quick acceleraometer response and gorgeous screen, truley make it an amazing game tablet.
Build quality is amazing. All metal and glass, almost no hint of plastic anywhere. Tablet alone is slim and solid, and when connected to the keyboard dock, it feels extremely solid like a slab of solid aluminum. I find myself picking it up all the time to marvel over it's slim, solid and well designed construction. The dock connection between the tablet and keyboard is so solid, it feels like a small laptop when connected. It does not feel like a removable connection. Truly well designed and built.
In a word, SEXY!
Thinking back to when a sickly Bill Gates announced the arrival of the iPad I thought to myself, not really sure what it does, has a nice form factor and Matt Lauer owns one I placed my order thinking, heck, I'll find over nine uses for it (like I did the Pocket-Fisherman). Sure enough, I replaced the timing belt and it started right up! Well, he didn't know me from Adam, but, ok, I'll go with it. Anyway, if you follow (and agree with) my line of reasoning you will love Uranium Ore. Packing is simple but polite and mine came with a bonus applicator. I bought this mainly for acne and constipation. Also, don't listen to the negative reviews, they are talking about the older model of Walkman, they are lies, I can still think as clearly as the day I was born. Go Cougs!
