IT'S BECOMING EASIER to find business justifications for iPad clones (and the iPad itself if your expense line is happy to oblige) because the easy form factor makes simple work of mobile data management. In today's Sunday broadsheets, several app-related stories arise with suggestions that paid content will be easier to push onto the mainstream if that content is folded into paid applications. If this is true, the Irish Sunday broadsheets will start appearing as interactive iPad applications before the end of 2010 and within two years, revenue from those paid applications will outstrip traditional online subscription revenues. I'm following this trend as part of a Technology and Trends module taught at LIT-Clonmel.
Food, Glorious Food is the headline of one of the longest feature pieces inside the Sunday Business Post Agenda magazine today. Ros Drinkwater wrote the story, featuring the smiling face of Peter Ward from Country Choice in Nenagh. Kieran Murphy from Dingle's award-winning Murphy's ice cream also offers advice about Irish food awards.
Trigger Happy is a story that caught the eye of Piaras Kelly as he flicked through the FT Magazine. It's the cover story about Kennesaw, Georgia. Anna Fifield explains, "The citizens love guns there and that's why they passed a law making it compulsory to own one."
