iPad (or similar) in an IT Office
Not sure if this is in the right place so apoligies if it isn't...
I have a question that has been on my mind for ages and would like to know what others think. The main question is what do IT Staff (NM's etc) need devices like iPads (or equivalents) for in the School / Office environment, I can understand why "some" students may want them but personally I think they are a waste of money in that use. Finally what would you do with them as a Network Manager or Junior Technician etc.. I have thought of a few things and am drawing up a table of advantages and disadvantages and am asking for contributions.
If you have one what sort of things do you use it for ??
Ideal for Internet Surfing,
Updating School Website (If possible),
App Development (Skills)
updating schools FB or Twitter (If they have it)
Distraction, (Apps, Games, News, Photos, iMessage etc....)
Limited to the iOS Family (and jailbreaking) however Win 8 support for ARM may change this ???
Nothing really special compared to a netbook etc.
