Well, we don't have images to post of
the new tablet, but we do have something almost as good. McGraw-Hill
CEO Terry McGraw is probably on Steve Jobs' hit list right now as he
has confirmed a number of rumors swirling around the device including
the fact that it runs the iPhone OS.
CNBC News anchor Erin Burnett had an
interview today with McGraw and managed to slip in a question about
Apple at the end of the segment. Surprisingly, McGraw just let the
information flow from his mouth without
much prodding at all according to MacRumors:
exciting. Yes, they'll make their announcement tomorrow on this one.
We have worked with Apple for quite a while. And the Tablet is going
to be based on the iPhone operating system and so it will be
transferable. So what you are going to be able to do now is we have a
consortium of e-books. And we have 95% of all our materials that are
in e-book format. So now with the tablet you're going to open up the
higher education market, the professional market. The tablet is going
to be just really terrific.
Steve Jobs -- and Apple for that matter
-- is notoriously secretive and controlling about upcoming products,
so this little slip-up is sure to be sending Jobs into a fits of
anger on the eve of launching the "the
most important thing [he has] ever done". The video of the interview has already been removed, so the boys in Cupertino are likely now readying a horse's head for McGraw.
