Years ago, I worked for a contracting company. At this company, I worked with writers, engineers, managers, and sales people - all working at various area businesses - doing short or long term contracts. Being right out of college, this was an exciting job to have. I learned a lot from the job and the people I worked with.
I have an iPad. I must say, it is one of the favorite gadgets I have ever, ever, ever owned. I use it for email. I use it to read books. I use it to watch missed TV shows (Netflix). I use it to keep track of my calendar, create to-do lists, interact with friends via Facebook, take notes during meetings, play Scrabble, and keep track of money. I even have an app to keep track of how much calories I eat per day. (I avoid that one!)
My kids also play with the iPad. I try to have some education games for them when they use it. (There is only so much I can take of Plants Vs Zombies and Fruit Ninja.) iPad, along with all mobile Apple products, has so many educational games. The list could be in the 1,000s. There are some games, I even enjoy. (A lot).
