Businesses Large and Small Putting iPad to Work


An article by Joel Mathis over at MacWorld has several examples of how small companies and entrepreneurs are using the iPad to build business and impress customers. Examples include advertising, furniture delivery, printing, and (in the comments) high-end floor cleaning and polishing. Why the iPad? A primary reason is the iPad is just the right size. Notebook computers are too bulky, while the screen on other mobile devices (such as smartphones) is too small.
