They spoiled Steve's "surprise".
News that Steve Jobs was definitely going to release a tablet PC this afternoon was greeted with horror and sadness by Mac fan boys who treated the news as if it was reading the last page of a murder mystery.
Macworld slammed Gizmodo for running a yarn which said publisher McGraw-Hill's Harold Terry McGraw claimed that Apple will take the wraps off a tablet this afternoon McGraw said his outfit had been working on a tablet with Apple for quite a while. He added that the tablet's operating system will be based on the iPhone OS, implying that all work done on developing apps for the iPhone OS will be easily transferable to the tablet. There will also be a "consortium of e-books" available, and 95 percent of McGraw-Hill's library will be available in that format.
