IT BEGINS: Apple's iPads Are Invading The Corporate Market And Killing Microsoft's Laptops
Read more: [link to www.businessinsider.com]

In the start of a potentially world-changing trend, corporations are beginning to buy Apple's iPads and develop applications for them.

In doing so, the companies are breaking free from the vice-grip lock that Microsoft and Intel have had on their business for the past two decades.

The iPad-adoption stories are mostly anecdotal reports so far, so they won't show up in quarterly reports and financial statements. But they could represent the start of a major trend. And this trend has the potential to upend the enterprise technology industry and, ultimately, cripple Microsoft's business.

Some anecdotes from an article by Ben Worthen of the Wall Street Journal:

That's funny.

A moran I know bought one.

Tried for hours to figure out how to get it to print without emailing stuff to his pc.

Gave up, when he read that Apples policy for printing is to mail it to your pc or Mac. LOL

It's a nice 400 dollar picture album though :>)

You're both morons. There are apps that let you print anything just like a computer. Hell even my iPhone can do it.

Bingo!

This is the reason the iFad won't ever overcome Laptops, Netbooks, upcoming tablets, and good-ol Desktops.

I wonder if those businesses understand that they aren't allowed to change the batteries.

Settle down you scared sheep.

How many gizmo's have entered this earth with hype and disappointment?

The only reason anyone would gripe about something is because you didn't get any attention from buying it.

Morans.

You don't achieve an identity from accolades or materialsim morans.

You purchase something because it fulfills a certain need.

Morans.

Stop trying to show off your "intelligence". No one's looking, and no one cares.

Morans.

No one's putting a gun to your head to buy anything.

Morans.

I love my iPad, but there's still a lot of room for improvement. Right now it's basically designed for the consumption of information, not production. Great for Twitter, Web-surfing, reading, videos, getting directions, etc. Not so good for writing (including emails).

iPads are shit to type on. No feedback or speed like with a physical keyboard.

So if you're going to plug all that in you may as well get a PC.

That's all you need to know.

It will pass.

The concept of the ipad is way cool. I want a pad device very bad, i just refuse to pay 500 for a device that has no multitasking, no ports, and on and on...... apple is good at slowly sucking people dry. I am waiting for the droid too.

Are we seriously still acting like the Max-iPad still took the world by storm, replacing every electronic device in just under 90 days and defusing all nuclear bombs while promoting world peace and Volkswagens?

I knew there were role-players here, but wow, just wow.
