iPad 2 Spotted at Daily Launch?

The future of journalism wasn’t the only thing on display at News Corp.’s launch event for the Daily today. The future of the iPad was as well. A “Reuters eyewitness”claims to have seen the next iteration of the device at the gathering. Reuter’s describes it as a working prototype and says it features a front-facing camera, which has been endlessly rumored. But it offers no photographic proof (evidently its eyewitness is unfamiliar with the intricacies of the smartphone camera).

Odd that Apple would allow something like this to be taken to an event filled to bursting with media. Good thing News Corp. didn’t hold it at a German beer garden….(Disclosure: News. Corp. owns this Web site.)

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
