Using your iPad at work
Whereas Apple has generally positioned iPad as media consumption device, it’s turned into a serious work tool for many. Personally, though I’ve used the Apple tablet to taste, set up, edit and publish blog posts, iPad is best suited for the first two steps of the process.
Thereupon, I use Pulse News, Zite and SkyGrid to taste news. Depending on whether a story will get published right away or squirreled away for later, I use Safari, iCab or Evernote to do the set up.

When all of that is happening, NPR, BBC or TWiT is running in the background — gotta multitask and the news itch never really gets fully scratched, does it?
Of course, when out and about (or spending time in the executive washroom), iPad is how email gets checked and answered. And, yes, there’s the whole Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, etc. social networking thing, too.
So, how does the iPad fit into your workflow? If you’ve got one, chances are you’re now working differently…
