Steve Jobs Doing What He Does Best

The whole world knew that Apple was going to announce the iPad 2 this week. What we didn't know was that Steve Jobs himself would do the honors. To me, that's even better news than the unveiling of the iPad 2!

The new unit has two cameras, a dual-core processor and is far thinner than the already svelte iPad 1.

I was traveling this week to Redmond, and my boss toted along his iPad. He's got that thing doing everything a laptop can do -- and he has a lot more fun doing it.

iPad users have possibly even more passion than Mac users. They love these things. If I didn't have so many kids in or about to be in college, I'd have one of these puppies too!

I'm starting to look into how IT ties iPads into corporate systems. What have you done with your or your end-users iPads? Let me know at [email protected]
