New York's Tekserve gets Major Facelift | Macintosh | Scoop.it
It's one of New York's great indie Mac retailers, made famous by Sex and the City and made successful by thousands of loyal customers... but, if we're going to be frank about it, it was a little bit cluttered and cramped. That's why the team at Tekserve spent most of the Memorial Day weekend ripping out the furniture and refreshing the store layout from the (newly sanded) floorboards up.

Once signed up, you get the full paper on your iPad (including all your favorite columnists and New York stories) along with the iPhone and web versions.

iPad enters the Cockpit on Alaska Air

iPad enters the Cockpit on Alaska Air | Macintosh | Scoop.it
Alaska Airlines is dumping paper flight manuals for its pilots in favor of electronic documents stored on company-issued iPads.

The Seattle-based carrier will be the first major U.S. airline to make the switch from paper to iPad when all its pilots receive a tablet by mid-June. Alaska is making the switch "as part of an ongoing effort to use technology to enhance flight safety, improve efficiency and protect the environment," according to a statement from the airline.

Apparently the iPad was the first device to impress Alaska higher-ups enough to consider going digital.

E-Book prices fuel Outrage -- and Innovation

E-Book prices fuel Outrage -- and Innovation | Macintosh | Scoop.it
An e-book that costs the same as a printed book doesn't feel right. No trees died to make it. No heavy machinery ran to print it. No planes flew to ship it. So why should you have to spend as much as you would for a heavy hardcover book to own it?

Apple, the reigning heavyweight of the music business, may have solved the cloud conundrum.
