How Much is Google Paying Apple To Be The Search Engine On iPhone, iPad, And Elsewhere?
$1 billion.

Schachter believes Google searches on Apple devices resulted in $1.3 billion in gross revenue. He believes Google has a 75% traffic acquisition cost associated with that revenue. As a result, Google only gets $335 million in net revenue from searches on iOS and Safari.

Great posts on apps for autism.

Here’s one from “tech teacher” that caught my eye:

Hi

Just thought I’d drop in and let you know that I’ve been working with and training teachers in ipad technology for the past year. Both for ASD children (my own included) , other kids with intellectual disabilities and mainstream kids.

The beauty of the this technology is not so much “which app” but the engagement it can bring to all … the creative uses are virtually limitless. It is this aspect that I try to get across is that it is your insight in to your own child that will bring the maximum benefit. From exploring music , art , reading , augmentative communications , puppetry, special interests ….

One other simple thing … the ipad is an expensive piece of technology so do not just purchase for a child to use exclusively. Share in the family … I use it , both my children use it at differing times and now my wife uses it. (To play music and relax.)

Even at school … if your child does bring it or it is part of their individual education plan … share it. One way to open up cross talk amongst peers and open up new relationships … whilst your child is not using iot why let such an elegant piece of technology rust away , so to speak.

Just for fun … my top app for high functioning ASD ( which may be myself - undiagnosed) are the comics. They come up beautifully on the 10 inch screen. Accessing relevant literacy muy favourite for the older kids.”

Apple Plots Its TV Assault

Apple Inc. is moving forward with its assault on television…working on its own television that relies on wireless streaming technology to access shows, movies and other content. Steve Jobs envisioned building a TV that would be controlled by Apple’s mobile devices.

Google Inc. is trying to enable users to access apps and Internet video on traditional TVs through its Google TV software, which shares some technology with its Android mobile operating system.

IMO, we can get ready to see the iPad enlarged to the size of flat screen TV in the near future… the same way the iPhone was enlarged to become the iPad…cool stuff.

If Apple “Onshored” iPad Production it Would Create 67,000 American Manufacturing Jobs!

That’s the conclusion reached in this study here:
http://simply-american.net/2011/11/30/comparing-apples-to-apples/

If Apple brought the assembly line for the iPad onshore into the US, it would create 67,000 manufacturing jobs right here in America. Obviously, Apple’s profit share would be destroyed since the American labor market would be payed much more than the Chinese laborers.

I started researching the various ways that education has been and can be delivered via TV. It occurred to me that I let my kids watch a heck of a lot more TV than I was ever allowed to when I was their age (bad daddy!). But they’re watching TV shows that are educational and stimulate cognitive responses (rationalizing…). Also, because they are accustomed to interacting with games, stories and characters from TV shows via our iPad/iPhones, their approach to TV tends toward the interactive, whereas mine was (and still is!) almost entirely passive. Where all this will lead, both in terms of my research and future developments in “teaching through television,” I’m not quite sure. Stay tuned :)

Digital media a regular part of life for many children. According to a national study by Common Sense Media, digital media has become “a regular part of the media diet” of children ages zero to 8 years old.

Infants and toddlers are spending twice as much time with screen media as they are with books, a report says. This is surely going to have an effect on education very soon. Books in the classroom will disappear. And that’s a good thing in my book :)

Interesting article on the hype re autism and ipads. I’m definitely on the fence about this… I’d have to try using the ipads with my students to decide, I guess.

iPads Are Not a Miracle for Children With Autism
By Daniel Donahoo

The iPad has received evangelical coverage in the media and blogosphere, especially when it comes to autism. Parents have flocked to the device and governments and other organizations that support children with a disability have been hit hard with requests for funding and to support the purchase of the device. Some philanthropic organizations, like golfer Adam Scott’s Foundation, have been providing iPads to families loaded with a suite of apps recommended for children with autism.

Of course, this has had the unintended impact of being quite a difficult experience for families of children with autism who can’t afford the device. The feeling that there may be something out there that can support their child’s development, but that they can’t access, is a terrible situation for a parent to be in. The reportage of the experience of children with autism who use the device doesn’t reflect on how parents and professionals support and engage with children to use the device. They promote it as though every child with autism is a savant who has been waiting for this perfect tool. While a few of the stories may be accurate, they generally do not show the whole picture of how an iPad supports child development.
