So many industries are adopting the iPad tablet as a solution to replace massive printed material whether it be text books or flight bags for commercial pilots. United Airlines announced today that they have made a complete transition to replace flight bags of navigation charts and manuals by offering their pilots 11,000 iPad 2 devices.

Smart decision by the airlines since the iPad is so much easier for pilots to navigate and easier to keep up to date along with the ease of the iPad touch interface. Continue Reading →
Apple has released another amazing ad for iPad 2 just a few hours ago. It is clear and moving messaging regarding the way the iPad 2 is changing how we interact with the digital world. Watch it and be impressed and proud of being an iPad 2owner.

At the end of the day, when you are printing agendas around 200 pages apiece and after the meeting they go into the recycling bin, you say, ‘Why are we doing it like this?’ We have to run 20 agendas at 200 pages per agenda. That’s 4,000 pages just on that one, and that’s not including the time to put it together. And you usually don’t get it right the first time because everything changes. I would think it takes over eight hours per packet.” Continue Reading →
