  • The iPad Gets an iFund to Promote Revolutionary Thinking and Achievement

    Several years ago while working for E! Entertainment Television, it quickly became obvious to me how E! Online pioneer Kevin Wendle was passionate about the potential of technology.

    Naturally, it comes as no surprise that Wendle is now partnering with other web entrepreneurs like MusicNation co-founder Daniel Klaus to kick off a new venture called AppFund. The point? To help developers design apps for Apple's revolutionary devices, especially the soon-to-be released iPad.

    Kind of makes you want to burst out into an Apple-themed rendition of "We are the world," doesn't it?

    This iFund, indeed, has enormous potential given the potential it stands to unleash from developers and other inspired minds
    that may now have an opportunity to finally bring their creative genius to life.

    And don't think the big guns won't be rolled out to make it happen. The website is promising as little as $5,000 and up to $500,000 for "full scale development, marketing, and deployment."

    While it's much too early to assess how this will all play out, what could prove just as - if not more - important as the money available for this endeavor is the consistent, steady, and experienced mentoring that will accompany developers on their journey into iPad app development - a brave new world for us all.

      you know i think i might have to convince my mom to buy one of these. for what she used computers for (emails, light internet usage, reading), the ipad would be great for her.

      no need for her to arouse a 1300 dollar beast for checking her email, and it has a big enough screen for her too.

      but man can anyone imagine an RTS game, like warfare inc, on a 10 inch screen? full multitouch?

      that shitttt would slay
