  • Among other things, I now research and write just about every column using an iPad (I still compose many first drafts by speaking into my headphones, but I’m an odd duck).

      Speaking a draft into the headphones, wow, talk about visualization of things? Can you see the draft in your head?
  • Jobs declared the iPad to be the future of computing. “PCs are going to be like trucks,”
  • Like a phone, in most scenarios I find the iPad to be faster, more portable and easier to use and maintain than any traditional P.C. I’ve ever owned.
  • The iPad still can’t do everything a laptop can, and I still have to log in to a “real” computer sometimes.
  • the iPad doesn’t work with antiquated work flows that are built for PCs

    The Stillwater Area Public Schools began their laptop initiative in November of 2003. At that time, each teacher at Stillwater Junior High School (SJHS) and Oak-Land Junior High School (OLJHS) received a laptop and began a program of professional development focused on increasing teachers' knowledge and skills related to using the laptops and integrating technology into their curriculum. Students at both schools received laptops in the spring of 2004. High school students had their own laptop in a one-to-one program that allowed computers to be taken home. The junior high used mobile laptop carts, offering a 3:1 student-to-laptop ratio. Both schools made wireless Internet access available throughout their buildings and offered students and parents online access to course assignments and grades.
