On The Menu: Will The (Possible) Apple Tablet Be A Game Changer?

mmm_2-3.gifToday on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven welcomed Guy LeCharles Gonzalez, the organizer of F+W Media‘s upcoming Digital Book World conference.

Guy, Jason and Matt discussed this weekend’s big news — Apple’s announcement of a presentation next week, which many assume will be the introduction of the long awaited tablet computer. Guy said he was remaining skeptical about the yet to be revealed device, which many herald as a savior for the publishing and media industries.

“At the end of the day, what is that device going to replace? Is it going to replace my netbook? …my cellphone? …my desktop?” Guy asked. “If the tablet is some big game changer, then you know who wins? Apple wins, like they did with music. Publishers aren’t going to win.”
