Reverse Ferret! Forget what we told you – the iPad isn't really for work
Just in time for T’giving, the truth emerges. Or common sense pokes its tired head out of its burrow.

> This autumn, rather than taking a huge leap forward into professional business computing, as many had hoped, the iPad retreated into its boutique, graphics niche. It's more expensive than ever, and more focused on those creatives. And as if to remind us that such fragile things of beauty are not for the white or blue-collar masses, it's more fragile than ever too.

> The problem with the iPad's direction is everything it excels at is not needed for me, nor for any other productivity software-using worker. I really don't need such an extraordinary, lavish 2388x1668 ProMotion TrueTone display. I don't need the expensive array of sensors required for Face ID – give me a thumb scanner.

Why iPad Magazines Are Failing
Good news for open content fans. The problem isn't just subscription charges. The iPad mag is a closed system: can't link in or out, can't share it with others, can't tag it on pinboad or add it to Instapaper. Closed systems - like paper textbooks - are failing.

Naked CIO: Apple's iPad - why it's iBad for business IT | Page 2 | CIO Insights |
Businesses stay clear of ipad. Why? "All they care about is selling volume to pimply-faced teenagers looking for the next big thing. It is not in their business model and so it can't be in ours." Talk about a specious argument. I say, Fine. Keep ipads out of business. we spotty-faced pros do just fine without your tribe.

june 2010 by mcmorgan The Glass Box And The Commonplace Book
A brief look at how text that can circulate through the web creates more value than text locked in boxes- the problem starts when we're limited in what we can circulate, whether by lack of copy and paste or rights restrictions. Starts with commonplaces books as web snippets and rests the argument on that practice. "A single piece of information designed to flow through the entire ecosystem of news will create more value than a piece of information sealed up in a glass box." "When text is free to flow and combine, new forms of value are created, and the overall productivity of the system increases. " The
