John Coyne, who is a CEO at Western Digital, revealed yesterday that tablet devices like Apple's iPad are negatively affecting on the hard drive business. Talking in numbers, iPad may reduce shipments of low-end netbooks and laptops on 10-20 percent over the next few quarters. But Coyne tried to reassure investors the business will be still profitable:
"What I would say to investors is to look at the long-term demand for storage, the fact is the most appropriate solution for mass volume storage is hard drives and to look at the long-term progress the industry has made over the last 10 years".

Here's the Apple CEO in his own words talking during Apple Q4 Earnings Call:
Hi, everybody. As most of you know, I don’t usually participate in Apple earnings calls, since you’re all in such capable hands with Peter and Tim. But I just couldn’t help dropping by for our first 20-billion-dollar quarter. I’d like to chat about a few things, and then stay for the rest of the Q&A, if that’s all right.
First, let me discuss iPhone. We sold 14.1 million iPhones in the quarter, which represents a 91 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter, and was well ahead of IDC’s latest published estimate of 64 percent growth for the global smartphone market in the September quarter. And it handily beats RIM’s 12.1 million BlackBerrys sold, in their most recent quarter ending in August.
MuscleNerd, a hacker from DevTeam, recently published a screenshot of anticipated jailbreak utility PwnageTool 4.1. It will support iOS 4.1 and will be able to preserve old baseband for unlockers, who have not updated to iOS 4.1.
From the screenshot we can tell that PwnageTool 4.1 will support:
It was a real surprise when Steve Jobs appeared at the financial results conference call for Apple's Q4 2010 results. He commented some topics, including launch of rumored 7-inch iPad. Jobs criticized such size, saying that it was too small:
A German research group presented a concept of an “autonomous car”. This is a car, which drives itself, using special equipment to monitor road and environment. It is controlled by an iPad application. First of all, he iPad finds your location via GPS and sends it to the car. The autonomous cab can find you, pick you up, and take you wherever you want. Moreover, you may track the cab’s movement and scanner information directly from the iPad.
Tethering settings were added to 3G iPads after iOS 4.2 beta 2 for iPad was released. It may mean that Apple was going to add iPhone-like tethering to WiFi + 3G models of the iPad. But in newly realized iPad 4.2 beta 3 was discovered that Apple had removed such settings (see picture, earlier the tethering options were under the ‘Cellular Data’ fields). May be we will see these features in new iOS 4.2 in November or may be it was only mistake, and Apple is not planned for a future iPad software release.
Apple’s iPad is so popular round the world, and it’s not surprisingly that people from the areas that Apple hasn’t yet reached, want to obtain this device. Sometime they have to trip pretty long distances to get it.
