“Content is King” – Steve Jobs gave a live demo of this when he got the whole iTunes ecosystem up and running – the pricing and the approach there was pure genius. But now, he has a different challenge – with eBooks, Jeff Bezos landed there first. But you can bet he’ll handle this one with the same genius touch.

Apple Inc. is still working to secure content for the iPad with just weeks to go before the tablet computer’s release, said people familiar with the matter, as the company tempers some of its initial ambitions for the much-hyped device.

Apple is racing to complete some discussions with potential content partners before the iPad is scheduled to ship on April 3, said people familiar with the matter. But nailing down the content has proven difficult as some potential collaborators weigh the advantages of working with Apple against the potential threats to their current sources of revenue, these people add.
