The iPad at Work

Will workers bring their iPads to the office? Will companies deploy them?

iPad at WorkWhile businesses have traditionally made technology purchase decisions for their employees, the release of the iPhone accelerated the so-called "consumerization of IT"—the tendency of employees to bring their personal smartphones into the workplace and use them for business purposes. With the release of the iPad, Apple seems to be working its way up the spectrum of mobile form factors. It will be very interesting to see how business users and organizations respond to this new platform.


Kindle Killer

iPad, iBooks, iBookstore: 3-punch knockout

Kindle and iPadThe iPod and iTunes made Apple the most important player in the music industry. Now, with the release of the iPad and the free iBook app to access its new iBookstore, Apple aims to do the same for print. So how does the iPad fare as an eBook reader


iPad Gaming: The Next Big Thing!

New games that take advantage of the iPad's enhanced features

At this year's Game Developers Conference (GDC) in March, much of the buzz was centered on the iPad. Everyone was eager to get in on what Apple executive Scott Forstall called, "a whole new Gold Rush for developers." However, these game developers were encountering a problem: Apple had not provided even the biggest third-party companies with early iPad devices to test their applications. Developers instead had to rely on computer emulation, without the security of knowing how their games would play on an actual iPad.


First Hands-on Impressions of the iPad From iPhone Life.com

Introduction and edit by Benjamin Katz

Touted as a magical and revolutionary device, the iPad has hit the shelves with a big splash. Is Apple really that good? Can they create a device that on the surface lacks many basic features and still receive overwhelmingly positive reviews? Apparently they can. I was a bit skeptical when I started seeing all the glowing reviews flooding the internet. That being said, the iPad does have a bit of magic to it. It's not the instantaneous response of zooming in and out on the touchscreen, though that certainly blew me away initially. I suspect I'll soon take the speed for granted. No, what makes the iPad magical is that it is essentially a blank slate that can become just about anything an app developer can conceive.


iPad: It's All About the Apps

A look at the software that makes the iPad a winner

Imagine if back in January of 1984, the release of the first Macintosh had been accompanied by over 150,000 applications—games, utilities, communications tools, you name it. The Mac would now be the pre-eminent personal computing platform on the planet.

Early in the morning of April 3rd, 2010, as the first eager Apple fans were picking up their iPads, the total number of available apps exceeded 150,000. Since most of these apps can run on the Apple's tablet, new iPad owners had immediate access to a huge library of creative and useful apps.


Apple's iPad

The First Truly Personal Computer

Large screen, enhanced performance, great apps, and more.

For the Apple faithful, the announcement and first public demonstration of the iPad on January 27th, 2010 was both a taste of the future and a bit of a quandary. Was this really a "magical and revolutionary product at an unbelievable price," or just an oversized iPod touch?


iPad Case Finder — new website helps you find the right case


iPad Case Finder is a new website that helps you find the case you're looking for. You can sort by brand or by case/bag or by color. Personally I want a vertical case with a shoulder strap. But I want it svelte, and not the luggage end of the spectrum. iPad Case Finder's category of bags (sometimes also called satchels or messenger bags) lists the sort of cases I'm looking for.

Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité FRANCE 24


Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité are not the only things I love about France, though I deeply connect to these concepts. I remember my time in Paris some years back very fondly, the amazing culture, food & wine and a people who in general seem far more interested and understanding of what is happening in the world than my friends here.

iPad and Fine Arts



I've been enjoying the Art Authority for iPad ($9.99) from Open Door Networks for some time now, initially just exploring the the various artists, periods and styles and then exploring it as a coffee table book of sorts.  Though at a recent dinner party where there was some lively discussion about the iPad versus Kindle with a side by side comparison (no comparison) most everyone agreed that the iPad with Art Authority isn't a coffee table book, it has a different purpose.
