From the Author: Top Five iPad at Work Tips
1. E-Mail and Calendar Bliss.
The iPad nails the little details for the mobile road warrior. Manage and run your Microsoft Exchange, IMAP, CalDAV and other e-mail and calendar protocols seamlessly from your iPad. No more do you you need to manage that awkward Airport laptop boot-up. Just pull out your iPad, turn it on, and go.
2. Use a Bluetooth Keyboard.
While the iPad on-screen keyboard works great for small writing projects. If you intend to write more than 1,000 words at a go, get yourself a Bluetooth keyboard and you’ll fly.
3. Try Remote Access.
Don’t forget that using modern virtual computing protocols, you can remotely control your Mac or Windows PC from your iPad. Running your powerhouse PC from your iPad on the road feels like you can have your cake and eat it too.
4. Brainstorm Like Never Before.
There are some remarkable outlining and mind mapping apps for the iPad that are more intuitive with the iPad’s touch interface than ever before possible with a keyboard and mouse. Use your iPad for that critical planning stage of your next successful project.
5. Own the Internet.
The iPad, with its ‘instant on’ technology and long battery life, make the Internet easier than ever. Take advantage of the assortment of web browsers, social networking apps, and other web savvy apps on the iPad.
