MacNotables #1027: Jim Dalrymple on the State of Pad Computing, Papermaster’s Break with Apple and More

Jim Dalrymple of The Loop delivers his thoughts on the past, present and future of “pad computing,” evaluating the players and their chances of success. Why Microsoft appears to be clueless, Android is compelling, RIM may have the best competitive chance, and HP is the dark horse in the race are discussed, along with the fact that they all seem to have ceded the top spot to Apple. Jim also talks about Mark Papermaster’s departure from Apple, Yoko Ono’s position on The Beatles in the iTunes Store, and how he differentiates The Loop from other Mac sites.
