Your average politicians or councilmen don't go to rallies to read the Bibles from cover to cover. Their smart phones (or notes on their hands) are sufficient enough for pep rally speeches. They bring their advisors, secretaries, laptops for fielding questions from the press - who in turn also bring their laptops to write & take notes.
Furthermore, Apple also makes laptops like MacBook Pro and MacBook Air - there's nothing stopping the council from using Apple laptops, nor is it what I'm opposing here.
They are replacing reference materials with smaller portable devices/tablet like iPads - and this is where iPad shines. iPad isn't not replacing any note-taking devices like laptops.
man like I said you guys are [insult removed
] and self defeating with your arguments:
first you all say iPads are EXPENSIVE then you argue : "They bring their advisors, secretaries, laptops for fielding questions from the press - who in turn also bring their laptops to write & take notes." So bringing all THAT e.g secretaries etc INSTEAD of an iPad is CHEAPER? Using a whole bunch of staff instead of having the notes on hand on an iPad is more cost effective?
and you guys call ME deranged!!!
(dudes as I've given real life examples: that's why many execs, top politicians, lawyers, doctors are carrying iPads around. I see people in debates carrying them around now so that they can quickly refer to a point. )
"They are replacing reference materials with smaller portable devices/tablet like iPads - and this is where iPad shines. iPad isn't not replacing any note-taking devices like laptops."
sure will replace SOME laptops but I never said it replace all (I'm typing this on my desktop and not my iPad) and in my post i wasn't even discussing that issue of iPad relacing all notebooks - I said in my in CERTAIN situations like standing around it's more convenient. I said using a iPad was easier than a laptop in certain situations , you DISAGREED implying that laptops were just as usable and I pointed out how stupid it was to try use a laptop while holding it up in one hand whilst STANDING so stop trying to weasel out of it by changing my point...
and the idea of 'iPad replacing reference material is where iPad shines' was what I was getting at in my FIRST post in the thread so after bashing me you guys are going back to the point I made . i argued that cost savings is not just in replacing paper printing for just the agenda at hand but that time is saved as council members can have huge amounts of data (even previous minutes, historical data etc) always on hand on their iPads and they can answer unexpected queries without running back and printing more stuff.
I'm kind , I don't think you're "irrational and fanatic." like you call me, I think you [insult removed
