Lance Ulanoff Says iPad Won’t Save Publishing Industry

I think I have a new favorite interview subject: Lance Ulanoff of PCMag.com. Not only is this editor-in-chief incredibly easy to talk to, but he has the ability to make head-spinning, niche topics easy enough for the most technologically illiterate to understand. (Seriously, Lance. Can I call you next time my computer freezes?)

And he dropped a special piece of advice for any media folks who think their recessionary woes will end with the upcoming release of the iPad: slow down, grasshopper. “It’s a really cool device, and I know that the publishing industry has latched onto it as its savior. But this is not going to save it,” said Ulanoff. “This is going to bleed out into the marketplace relatively slowly.”

Watch the full video to find out why Ulanoff calls the early controversy over the device’s name “ridiculous” and who he thinks will be the iPad’s biggest market.
