What do you think about this?  I’ve said they are very versatile machines, now pilots are using them. They weigh 1.5 pounds and replace 35 pounds of paper the pilots normally carry on a flight.

According to Mike Elgan, author of a recent article on ipads in the workplace, “It used to be that professional mobile devices were specially designed, purpose-built vertical devices that cost four times as much as comparable consumer devices. They came as part of an integrated front-end, back-end “turn-key” “solution.”

Companies are discovering that it’s more important for mobile devices to be designed for the user, rather than the task.
