The iPad is essential

Those who failed to see the potential of the iPad are extremely shortsighted.

The iPad is not only innovative, but also essential in the following occasions:

1. Business Meetings

No matter it’s a 1-on-1 meeting with my business partner or a 50-person presentation to my customers, the iPad gives me the power to carry my slides and numbers around and effectively present them to my audience.  The iPad eliminates a heavy bag and a bunch of papers for me.

Shortsighters: a laptop can do the same plus so much more!

Question: Why do you carry a smartphone when you can just get a mobile Internet key from your service provider and bring your laptop around?

2. Entertainment and Lifestyle

Imagine playing monopoly or chess with your friends and family on the iPad.  How about setting up an interactive and fun guestbook at your wedding?  My wedding is coming up and I can think of thousands of ways on how to utilize the iPad to make it a unique experience for everyone.

Shortsighters: This is not essential!

Question: If the multi-billion-dollar entertainment industry is not relevant, then what is?

3. Personal Development

I read a lot of books.  In fact, I read at least 1 book per week, and I like to carry my books around when I travel.  The iPad gives me the power to carry as many books as I want and eliminate the baggage fees to board a commercial flight.

Shortsighters: You can’t possibly read that many books on-the-go, so just pick one and stick with it!

Question: Do you have an iPod?  How many songs do you have in there?  Do you listen to all of them on-the-go?  If not, why don’t you just pick one album and stick with it?

Embrace innovation and transform the lives around you!

    Think you are right here. Since I got my iPhone, things changed. I love it and do not ever want to get rid of it. I simply can’t live without it! One of the biggest shortcomings is the small screen in my opinion. I want an iPad when it’s available over here in the Netherlands…
