Tux Machines (TM)-specific
One of the things I have been working on this fall is a business-oriented book about the iPad.
I mention this because, (a) it's a shameless plug and
(b) it leads into the topic of tablet computing, which I think is a lot stronger moving forward than people realize.
This is not meant to be self-serving, because the future of tablet and touch-interface devices like them will be on far more devices than the iPad. Already Android phones and tablets are in or coming very soon to the consumer device market, which many predict will soon dominate that market.
