Apple highlights 'Life on iPad' stories in new promotional webpage

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
In time for the holiday season, Apple has launched a new page on its website dedicated to telling the stories of an eclectic gathering of athletes, doctors, dancers and more, who use the iPad in unique ways.

Life on iPad


The new "Life on iPad" webpage features a total of six stories, with text and video describing the many ways customers use Apple's tablet. Clips from each story were first shown during the recent iPad event in October just before the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display were revealed onstage.

The large teaser image, which leads to what can be considered a highlight reel, reads:

We designed iPad to be the best tool for all the things you do. But we never imagined where you'd end up taking it. Here are just a few stories.



In all, six different companies and individuals are featured in the vignettes, complete with interviews explaining how the iPad helps in their everyday life.

First up is Siemens Energy-Wind Service, which supplies their technicians with iPads to help aid in maintenance and repair of massive windmills. Previously, workers would have binders and "over a thousand pages" of materials craned up to the worksite, but all that is replaced with Apple's tablet. In addition, the iPad allows for photo taking, correspondence and Internet access in remote locations.

In "Finding the extra edge," speedskater Bridie Farrell is shown using iOS app Dartfish Express to record and analyze her workout sessions. With the iPad's computational horsepower, Farrell and her training team can review video without having to carry around a backpack of gear.

Another story comes from Dr. Itaru Endo, Director of Digestive Surgery and Liver Transplantation at Yokohama City University, who developed an iPad app that displays interactive patient data during live surgeries. Through augmented reality, surgeons are better equipped in the operating room. The app also delivers real-time patient data to help doctors conduct safer procedures.

The remaining three stories include a wine maker, a Broadway dance choreographer and an endurance offroad race team.

Absolutely gorgeous page.

 

I'm waiting for the "Life on Android Tablets" edition, where it shows the tablets sitting beautifully in drawers and on warehouse shelves everywhere, making very fine dust collectors and doorstops.

I think that video does exist. It's buried on the fourth shelf, sandwiched between the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 10.0.5 :D

I thought I saw those tablets dumped in urine-stenched alleys down on skid-row.  It was a damn shame... waste of a nice alley.  :)

Come on Microsoft, Samsung, Amazon, and Google, get your Apple copy pages up quick. You know you don't know what you're going to next without Apple showing you.

I remember when Dell did this for this early phablets. It seems like trying too hard. Waste of advertising money.

Ray Mears wouldn't be happy with that climber on the side of that mountain using their iPad. If I was climbing a mountain like that it'd be to get away from technology. A phone for emergencies is one thing.

Already reported; you should too. Don’t bother replying when it’s a hit and run one poster, particularly when the account exists to insult another user’s account.

I still love the fact that Apple maintains the ads to be about its own product and not need to compare its product with others (note: not competition, since it is just not the same).

I love the design of these pages. Beautiful.

Are you kidding? Ballmer is leaving because he thought it would be best for the company. He realized that MS needed a new direction so he left. It's the same reason we elect new presidents every four years

Yep, they were pretty much sick of his nude erection.

Nah. Pretty sure the board of directors finally had enough excuses and Bill Gates could no longer defend him. He was forced out.

That is......one of the most disgusting and immature things I've ever read on the internet, and that's saying something

Something, but not much. Want to see something immature: coming onto a website about a company you hate to make fun of products you hate.

1. I don't hate Apple, I just think they're overrated

 

2. I didn't make fun of their products, I just pointed out that MS is doing more practical things with Windows

First off, let's congratulate the developers for coming up with such applications that strengthen the entire eco-system.

Secondly, some of the credit has to go to the entire Apple team for designing such a wonderful product and for giving a framework to developers to forward their applications. This is where IMO others have failed miserably.

I remember back to that 1st iPad and the demo of those first ever modern tablet apps. I think it was Phil who stood up on stage and demoed iWork. I didn't think at the time, that iWork was meant to compete with other Office suites but more to give developers a template on what tablet apps should look like and how they should behave. Today, I can say that Apple has greatly succeeded and many of the more than 400000 apps stand as a testament to that original vision.

Now contrast this with Microsoft's vision where you can take the apps you use on the desktop, namely Office and run them unaltered on your tablet, the Surface. IMO this is more of the same  post gen 1 iPad mumbo jumbo. I mean statements like this. My netbook can do a lot more. That's just a big iPod Touch.

This entire iPad platform/eco-system can only get better from here.

Respectfully, you didn't do that at all. You compared people taking pictures with a company fighting cybercrime. If you're going to make comparisons, at least try to compare like with like.

Fine. You’re wrong, as decades of ratings have shown, but whatever.

You’ve seen Microsoft’s ads, right? That’s practical?

So you make an effort to register, and then to post, on a website dedicated to a company who's products you believe are "overrated". Your goal being? You're clearly a Microsoft astroturfer hoping to start some shit, and troll anywhere you have a chance, contributing absolutely nothing. There's alot of companies I think are overrated and products I don't care for, but I also don't go and spend my time posting on their boards, because that would be rather pathetic and odd.

Is the diver in the picture taking pictures of sharks? I would hope so.

Seems like a good place to ask this%u2026

Does anyone know where I can find a list of all the iOS Apps which are used in the latest iPad AIR "Pencil" TV ad?

Thanks...
