It’s Apple Tablet Day On The Menu

mmm_2-3.gifDespite Apple’s denials, everyone in the entire (media) world seems resigned to the fact that today’s big announcement will be a tablet device reveal.

So naturally, today’s mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast was all atwitter with tablet news and gossip, as host Jason Boog of GalleyCat was joined by FishbowlNY’s Amanda Ernst and eBookNewser editor Craig Teicher.

The group discussed the excitement that’s been brewing for the tablet’s release and cautioned against magazine and newspaper publishers hoping the new device will help save the industry. McGraw-Hill‘s CEO may have confirmed the tablet’s existence last night, and The New York Times had more details yesterday, but you just never know what Steve Jobs will unveil today — and how it will shake out in the industry over the next few months.

Also discussed: Newsday‘s pay wall disappointment.

On The Menu: Introducing eBookNewser

ebn.pngEven now with 13 blogs in on its roster, it’s not every day that mediabistro.com announces a new blog launch. But today, Morning Media Menu podcast host Jason Boog, the editor of mediabistro.com’s publishing blog GalleyCat, had some big news: the launch of the site’s latest blog, eBookNewser, which he will be overseeing as managing editor.

This morning, Jason and his co-host, AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven, welcomed eBookNewser’s editor Craig Morgan Teicher to the podcast, to help introduce the blog to the world.

Morgan said the blog will be following all the latest digital reading devices, like the Kindle and the Nook, the latest digital publishing applications, and the Google book settlement and all the repercussions the will derive from that. Today’s biggest news is that Barnes & Noble is debuting demos of its Nook device in stores starting today, although no actual devices will be available for sale.

The blog’s launch comes in advance of mediabistro’s conference next week, the eBook Summit on December 15 and 16. For more on the summit and eBooks, head to eBookNewser.com.
