Lesson 2: Apple iPad-Marvel Comics/ VIDEO Script
John, recently I’ve been trying to catch up with my reading. Did you happen to see the article on CNN online about Apple’s new iPad?
No, I haven’t kept up with Apple’s latest developments apart from downloading some new apps for my iPod. What’s new from Apple?
Well, they’re coming out with a new product called the iPad that is larger than the iPod but runs the same apps and will be able to dock with a keyboard. I think it will start to blur the barrier between media players and PCs.
Yeah, Apple seems to have hit products one after another. What is CNN saying about it?
The CNN writer brought up the fact that Apple has a strong connection to Disney who now owns Marvel Comics. You know, the one that features superheroes such as X-men, Spiderman and the Incredible Hulk?
Yeah they do own Marvel. So what’s the big deal?
Well, the CNN writer thinks that the new larger format of the iPad will be the perfect media to deliver the brilliant colors of the Marvel comics to loyal fans. He says that Sony and Amazon cannot currently hope to match Apple in this area.
It makes a lot of sense to me and I think there are plenty of geeks who are already in love with Marvel and most of Apple’s products. So it should be a hit product with them.
