    Gideon! Help us get the most of this IPAD product yes:)

    I just received your email “Famous nerd reveals iPad pot of gold” and immediately came to your website to listen to the broadcast. I must say that I was thrilled to hear confirmation of what I believe the impact of the iPad will have on the info product industry. However, the scale of the impact was something I haven’t wrapped my head around to date and this interview has lit a much needed fire in me.
    Personally, I’ve never been much of a reader of novels, (I like to curl up with a good manual,) however, in anticipation of the iPad, I recently installed the Kindle app on my iPhone and have purchased and read two novels on my iPhone with many more to follow. I can’t wait to get my hands on an iPad and am looking forward to publishing my own work in electronic format thanks to the changes in the publishing industry and the opportunities that will result. This is the new gold rush and it’s time to create some gold :-)

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Yeah the iPad is going to be HUGE… uhm… already IS HUGE!

      We have a very exciting few months coming up to see what will happen…

      Watch this space!


  3. Great interview with Ed Dale. I got A iPad for my fortieth birthday also. Since it was cheaper then a sports car. :)

    • Gideon Shalwick

      LOL! Yeah, it’s a much cheaper way going through your mid life crisis hehehe :)


  4. If you think Ed’s iPad “journey” and his continued promotion of the iPad is just about the iPad then you have partially missed the point.

    Ed is a self-promoting machine and he has learnt from the best.

    He is not too proud to ride on the coat tails of the iPad launch and more strength to him for having the intelligence and the foresight to do so.

    No doubt Ed loves the iPad for all the right reasons (it is a revolution in computing – bringing it to the masses after all) but Ed thinks far deeper than that.

    I am seriously impressed Ed !!!

    • Gideon Shalwick


      Good that you can also see the “meta- workings” of Ed Dale. He ain’t at the top for nothing :)


    • Kirk, I completely missed that (until you pointed it out)! Which just goes to show that he is a *publicity genius* because people don’t even realise that’s what he is also doing–(subtle publicity) is the best form of publicity! Will need to make a mental note of this and try it out too! Thanks for this blog post Gideon–was really interesting.

      • Yes, Ed is as very subtle and clever marketer. He can get genuinely teary eyed about a product he’s promoting even if he’s not that familiar with it and hasn’t proven it’s actual worth yet but sees a great potential in it.

        That can bite him one day but for now it’s paying off for him.


  5. Hi Gideon,
    Very interesting, I think he is right,it may be the product that will take off with the ‘ baby boomers’. If it captures even 1% of the world book market it will be huge. Thank you for your blog, please note my new e-mail address above.

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Yeah you’re right – just 1% would be huge. Somehow, I can see it penetrating much more than 1% of the market eventually.

      I really liked what Ed said about the iPad and how it “gets out of the way” – so, it seem it will be such a nice experience to read books on there. Bye-bye my beloved Kindle :(

      Talk soon Richard!


  6. weeks ago, i did a post on “why the ipad sucks”– i have tons of reasons since i expected more. Some people also argue that its much fun to read on the kindle than the ipad. I have yet to try that out. Although i will call this “my douchepad” :), i think its worth keeping. Besides, its handy and can slip into BIG pockets (only if you have one 😉 )

  7. Hi Gideon,
    thanks for the great info you provide.
    couple of questions –
    epub format – how do we do that? where do we go to?
    and using the ipad –
    it is on the phone connections? so using the internet is at mobile phone internet prices? more expensive than computer internet access??

  8. I was told that ipad doesn’t have facility to plug in memory stick etc?
    which would limit moving from computer to ipad and back.
    also, as it is on apple platform, would not be compatible with non-apple??

    • Hi Jules.
      True about that but you maybe missing the point. You actually sync it through the cloud as the cloud is where the future of storage is. Then you can access your info from your PC or Mac on your iPad, iPhone etc from wherever you are. Total mobility.

    I’m listening to this interview – fantastic you are able to bring this interview to us, Gideon!

    I’m actually a little confused with this iPad – why would it be better than what I’ve already got? How does it benefit me right now? What is it that’s so special over and above what I’ve already got at home?

    I’ve got the iPhone – great for when I’m out and about and very user friendly, small enough to put in my back pocket, take with me cycling. I’ve got the “Eee pc” top of the range laptop which is superb because I can fit it in my handbag and can type and manage my work anywhere – fantastic product btw – a real ‘lap top’. I have a Mac computer big screen for my work at home with access to watching TV when I want, films online if I miss them on TV etc.

    What I’m saying is, I have everything at my fingertips, so why and how will the iPad going to benefit me?

    Yes, I’m keeping my eyes open the e-book market through iBooks – this IS interesting, although Amazon is still King for me.

    As you can see, I’m still to be convinced in buying the iPad.

    Thanks for bringing the interview to us, !


  10. Great interview, as I fully expected, very insightful. Can’t wait till the end of May where they confirmed the Euro release date to finally land…

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Juho

      Phew – glad to know that it’s not only little old Australia that has to wait that long for the iPad to get here…

      Although, I think we’re supposed to get it end of April?


      • Lucky you if it’s end of April… Jobs recently confirmed it’s end of May for Europe…

        • Gideon Shalwick

          Hmmm… just read a report saying that the iPad release in Australia could be delayed by a month. So maybe we’re not as special as I thought :(


  11. Well done Gideon. Thanks so much for interviewing Ed Dale on the iPad. Very interesting spin on what uses it will have for the future.

    For me as an author, very exciting possibilities and I’d better get those other projects underway and find a way to design them so they are iPad friendly.

    I have to agree that the iPad is a big change in computing. Just read an article in Times Magazine here in the USA.

  12. Bernard Denis

    Just a suggestion, you should have put the duration of the clip, it is good and interesting but now I have to run after 16 mins and will only get the rest later, if I would have known…

  13. Being close to LA, I go and visit the Ipad on weekly.
    I agree with Ed, the Ipad is the most exciting and sturdy of recent creatures.
    I hesitate to take the plunge.
    I would like to replace my current “machine” with such a handy device.
    When we get to that point I will!

  14. Interesting interview Gideon. However, I am not going to be able to benefit from the iPad craze here in Hungary. Apple products have never really become widespread here. Very few people use a Mac or have an iPhone. Part of the reason is price. Hungary is just not a lucrative market for Apple. Understandable. It’s a small country with thin wallets. :)

    But good luck to you. I am sure many savvy marketers will make a fortune riding the iPad wave.

  15. re: iPad – I’ve been a strong supporter of the iPad since its first announcement – I use the iPod Touch at the moment and plan to buy an iPad in the near future. I compose text for my blog while I’m mobile, and I can check my e-mail, etc, etc, etc, on the iPod Touch, so the iPad (the iPod’s big bro) will become an active part of my electronic life-style – hey, thanks for the information.
    an associated of my oldest daughter just went to work for a company in London and they bought iPad’s for ALL their employees . . . if you miss this wave their won’t be another this good for quite awhile.

  16. I’m sure there’s going to be new mobile themes specifically for the iPad.. and obviously new apps that take advantage of the increased size plus touch screen… videos will explode as well..

  17. I can see the iPad proving very popular among baby boomers, new retirees, grey nomads, or whatever you prefer to call them. It’s the ultimate simple tool for their needs – web browsing, email, and showing off photos (and increasingly, video) of their grandkids. And it can do all that while they’re travelling.

    This is a market that’s under-served by current software, web apps, ebooks, etc. So there’s a goldmine waiting for people that are able to fill that niche.

  18. Excellent interview. I may have to invest in an iPad sooner then later. It seems perfect for a person who want to do a lot of traveling soon :)

  19. Fantastic interview. Really puts the potential for us marketeers into perspective…we better get moving to catch up with the technology!

  20. now ipad2 is rocking the grounds,and in may,apple is going to launch ipad 3!
    Gotta watch it out!
