McGraw-Hill. Ever heard of them? If you’ve picked up any textbook written in the last hundred years or so, chances are they published it. Well, their CEO just spilled the beans on Apple’s not-so-secret surprise on live TV.
Going beyond confirming that it’s the much-fabled Tablet, Terry McGraw confirms that they “have worked with Apple for quite a while” on this – so unless this guy has gone on a crazy binge, it’s pretty likely he knows what hes talking about. He goes on to matter-of-factly state that the tablet will be based on the “iPhone operating system”. The words, straight out of McGraw’s mouth:
“Yeah, Very 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 on that one. 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.”
