Apple s Next Product
Contest Directions: Yesterday's Apple announcement of their new revolutionary product iPad almost broke the Internet. The storm of blog posts and tweets started with the mockery of the name of Apple's new tablet, the iPad. Within minutes blogsphere called it "iTampon", asking "iPad, but does it have wings?" Soon, "iTampon" became a trending topic on twitter, eventually slowing twitter down and making it go over capacity several times. Virtually every big site that wrote about iPad became slow. "I think the Internet is about to go down...going so slow. Thanks, Apple," wrote Twitter user nickbell79. Twitter wrote their official explanation that the server issues were caused by the huge number of tweets about iPad, which got twitters angry. "iPad, iMad", wrote many twitters. iPad prices will start at $499. Good luck, Apple fans!
Help Apple design and market any of their future products.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Fortune wrote that Steve Jobs is "considered as one of Silicon Valley's leading egomaniacs". Comments on his temperamental style can be found in "The Little kingdom" by Mike Moritz - one of Jobs's few authorized biographies, in "The Second Coming of Steve Jobs" by Alan Deutschman and in "iCon: Steve Jobs" by Jeffrey Young and William Simon. In 1993, Jobs headed the Fortune list of Toughest bosses of America. Former colleague Jef Raskin once said that, Jobs could become " an excellent king of France". Jobs always aspired to position Apple and the company products in the foreground scene of information technologies, predicting and setting the tendencies, at least in the field of innovation and style. He himself said about this at the end of a keynote speech at a conference at the Macworld Expo in January 2007 by quoting the legend of hockey Wayne Gretzky: "There is an old citation of Wayne Gretzky, which I love. "I skate to the place where the puck is going to be, not where it has been". And, at Apple, we always attempted to do so. Right from the beginning and we will always do the same." According to Floyd Norman, in Pixar, Steve Jobs was "mature and soft" and never interfered with the creative process of the cinematographers. In 2005, Steve Jobs banned all the books, published by John Wiley and Sons in the Apple Store in reply to their publication of the unauthorized biography "iCon: Steve Jobs". Inventions: Jobs is indicated as the primary inventor or as co-author in more than 230 awarded patents or the patent applications, associated with a spectrum of technologies from real computers and portable devices to user interfaces (including sensors), sound speakers, keyboards, power adapters, staircases, fasteners, sleeves, straps and packets.
