A Rule of Thumb: Pricing Should Be Simple   —  One thing many companies — in any industry — can learn from Apple is the importance of simple pricing.  If you make it easy for people to understand how much they're paying, and what they're paying for, it is more likely that they'll buy it.

The iPad 2   —  I've been coming up empty trying to think of a hook for this review of the iPad 2 — an angle, a narrative structure, a theme to put it in perspective and make it more than a list of benchmarks and disparate observations.  Then I realized I already wrote it, a year ago, in this back-page column for Macworld:

The Chair   —  Even the chair on the stage was the same.  —  Yesterday's iPad 2 introduction felt like a repeat of last year's event for the original iPad.  Same place.  Same pace and structure for the presentation: a brief prelude of statistics showing how well Apple is doing company-wide …

The Eleventh Hour   —  I like Josh Topolsky, and I like Engadget, but this is a bit much: … Eleventh hour, my ass.  Nothing in these regards has changed in the iPad 2 since January.  Nothing.  There was never going to be a higher resolution display in the iPad 2.
