I was amused by how Apple totally took over Technology reporting in the days preceding the iPad launch. A screenshot from the Times Skimmer coverage from Feb-4-2010. Even the stories that weren’t about the iPad, like the Mcmillan disagreement with Amazon were influenced by the release. Oh…and by the way,the page is sponsored by Blackberry! 🙂
p.s. The article by Steve Lohr about Steve Jobs and the Economics of Elitism was really good. Innovation is not all about crowdsourcing or using social media.
