Jobs will relaunch the Mac in the educational | Macitynet.it
The National Educational Computing Conference (NECC), the meeting that brings together all the major managers of computerization in the USA, will have Steve Jobs as the speaker of the initial speech.The presence of the CEO has been confirmed by the meeting managers who have sought for years to have the CEO of Apple as a speaker who say they are "honored to have Jobs as a guest and protagonist of the keynote in front of 13,000 participants". Jobs' decision to join the NECC invitation falls at a particular moment in the history of Apple and has an equally special meaning. In recent months, the Cupertino company has made a lot of backward steps, the unwanted result of some wrong choices, in the educational context. Jobs, obviously, does not want to miss the opportunity, really greedy, to make his company protagonist again in an area that represents millions of dollars of turnover per month. It therefore does not seem foolish to believe that Jobs from the stage will not only reveal new strategies aimed at the school sector, but also new products. The NECC could, therefore, be the place of promotion of MacOs X as an operating system for educational work groups, but also the moment of the launch of some hardware upgrades. Which product too early to say, but certainly the revision of iBooks, adopted in many US schools and campuses as the preferred computer for study and leisure, would appear to be an adequate choice and would fall in the most appropriate period nine months after the latest update (occurred in Paris) Jobs' keynote will be held on June 25 starting at 8.30 am at McCormick Place in Chicago.
