Senior Citizens, This iPad is for You!

"Forbes has put together an interesting list of three things the iPad does well for seniors. The writer points out that Apple's iPad makes it easy for seniors with bad eyesight to adjust the text inside apps like Safari or iBooks. Safari's pinch to zoom text adjustment is especially easy because there's no menu button commands to tap, unlike with iBooks."

I don't think anyone can argue the ease of use of the iPad, being able to pick it up and start right in is definitely an advantage especially when you are talking about our senior citizens. I really don't think the glossy screen is a disadvantage, unlike the author of the article, but then again I have the glossy screen on my MacBook Air too. What are your thoughts?

Apple #56 on Fortune 500 List

"Apple's fortunes just keep improving - literally. The Cupertino, Calif. maker of iconic consumer electronics reached 56 in Fortune magazine's Fortune 500 list, rising 15 spots in the annual ranking of corporate success. Apple's $36.5 billion in revenue for 2009 put it just behind 10th-place HP ($114.5 billion) and 38th-place Dell ($52.9 billion.)"

This moves it ahead of Walt Disney and McDonald's on the profitability list, but Microsoft and Google are still ahead of Apple when it comes to profits. 2009 gave investors a 146.9 percent return rate which left the usual (since 1999) 23.4 percent return in the dust.

"I'm Rich(er)!" Steve Jobs

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 10:00 AM

"In its annual list of the world's billionaires, Forbes this year ranked Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a tie with six others for 136th place with a net worth of $5.5 billion. Jobs' net worth is up from $5.1 billion in an October 2009 Forbes ranking of richest Americans and up from $3.4 billion and 178th place in last year's world ranking."

Doesn't hurt that Apple stock is up more than 150% from last year. But he still has a ways to go to catch up to number one on the list, Carlos "Slim" Helú, who has net worth of $53.5 billion, bumping out Bill Gates. Just so you know, "Slim" was able to build up his wealth in the telecom industry and he takes in roughly $33 million....PER DAY!
