That's as useful as paying $500 for a PC to play solitaire! 🙂

Re: iPad as a Thin Client

I beg to differ! Google has their hands in just about *EVERY* pocket in the Internet! If you search for anything, even using someone else' search engine, you will still get tracked in Google's system. Period!

Eh, I don't really know why people hate on Google so much. They're not

He had to think about it a while before responding. I do that
sometimes.

Because voice control is plain stupid when you're working in a room where other people are working as well or on a train or where ever.

I bought a keyboard with my iPad and it works fantastic as a thin client.

Re: iPad as a Thin Client

If you do need a keyboard for an iPad there are some slip cover cases with built in rubber or plastic bluetooth keyboards. In a medical environment I would have thought the ability to easy wipe down the iPad would be good. I'm sure most people would adjust to typing on the screen in time.

Solution is obvious - when as a fanboi you upgrade to the New iPad, you
can use your Old iPad as a keyboard 🙂

But what about my third iPad? Can I use that as a hat perhaps to keep the rain off?
