iPad a replacement for notebooks?

The question wheter a iPad can replace notebooks for some people keeps popping up, from time to time. This comment on slashdot tells a tale of someone who did just that – and managed to save money in the process…

I’ve actually found a business segment where the iPad has made a near perfect replacement for the traditional laptop. I don’t see MS catching up anytime soon. I just finished up a 4 month project to get one my clients moved to iPad’s for courtroom usage. I was approached by the Sr Partner in the firm to come up with a way for him to use his new toy back in August. I was then given an iPad and list of “requirements”. It needed to be able to send and receive email, edit word and pdf’s, sync with the firms docket calendar, record dictation in a standard format that would be emailable and would be foot pedal compatible and access documents back in the office. After evaluating a ton of products I chose Pages, Evernote, Drop Box and Dictate on Demand with Team Viewer as an option for the more advanced. It worked so well that the Sr Partner decided everyone needed one.

A very interesting example; it only shows that both android and M$ have their work cut out for them…!

Quadrotor helicopters build tower

This is very interesting… research, anyway. If practical in any sense, remains to be seen, but it looks amazing! Imagine a squadron of quadrotor helicopters… and saying this 5 times out loud very fast will break your tongue… :-)

Too late… or…?

When you see this, you could argue that the plane stopped to late. And you would be right. But you could also argue that it stopped just in time… and you would be right! :-)

out of a morbid fascination of a majority of americans, just to see what would happen!

You know? It might actually be true…. :-)

Japanese design…

Funy nice vases:

Nice chair.. it might even be comfortable, albeit a bit cold…

I think the echo in here is maybe more interesting than the actual thing on display…

(if only because I don’t read japanese, so I have no clue as to what actually is on dispay…)

Tired?

Twirl down?

Colorfull!

Search Engine Optimalisation (SEO) is not worth it…

Search Engine Optimalisation (or SEO for short) is one thing my clients often ask me for. “I need to be found in google. How do I do that?”. Or, more assertive: “Make sure I get on the 1st page with my very important and unique business!”. Yes master, I bow and obey!…

It is virtually impossible to explain to customers that does not really work. I might show them this page in the future :-)

You think you control the temperature?

Think again – you don’t :-)

Of course, this is not easy to check… The same has been said of “close”-buttons in elevators. In elevators I use regularly there is such a button. If you press it, a light on the button lights up – and the doors close. But the doors close very fast anyway! So: is anything happing with the button? You really can’t tell… :-)
