World goes round

This week's Newsweek Asia (left) and Newsweek Japan covers caught my eye. Who'd have thought only a couple of month's back that the future of flying would be compared to (then-damaged company) Toyota's Prius, while the decisions of (can-do-no-wrong company) Apple would be questioned. The Japanese coverline says "Apple's dead space" (or "Apple's blind spot").

Although, demonstrating editorial independence, the cover story was listed next to an Apple ad online. (Already seeing iPads in use on the subway. However, coming home the other evening, all those seated opposite me were asleep or gazing into space, while one young woman had a paper notepad and pen and was busy doodling/writing/drawing/composing or…? Maybe she was setting a trend.)
