  • Why shouldn't students have instant access to information?

    Posted February 20, 2014 - 9:22 pm

    The Los Angeles Unified School District is engaged in a massive effort to put an iPad into the hands of every student in its district. I am all for this.

  • Business/IT and the iPad: Yes Please

    Posted April 27, 2010 - 6:14 pm

    One of the less-pleasant parts of being an IT Manager with a Mac network who writes about the same is that unlike my non-Mac managing compatriots, I have to pay attention to all the news that surrounds any Apple announcement. The iPad is no exception. Nor is it an exception to Sturgeon's Law, especially in the...quality of commentary about the device. Most of it makes me wonder if the people behind the commentary aren't just using a Mad Libs application to generate said commentary. The accuracy wouldn't be much worse. Fortunately, the actual story is a lot less worrisome.

    Here is a philosophical iPad question: What is it? Perhaps the best way to explain the iPad is to call it a jack-of-all-trades. It has all the functionality of the iPod Touch, including gaming, music, and video. But it's also a day planner, e-mail device, Web tablet, e-book reader, digital picture frame, and arguably a netbook replacement. So does this mean the iPad will be replacing any of your digital gear anytime soon? To answer that question lets take a closer look at how it matches up to the competition.
