Apple's iPad is about to arrive in Australia. Yes, there's plenty of hype. But the iPad is a new and different beast. How will it be used, beyond its obvious role, as a media consumption device?
On Patch Monday this week, a look at the iPad from an Australian perspective.
Keith Ahern, CEO of award-winning mobile consultancy Mogeneration, explains why he's enthusiastic about the iPad and why it represents a whole new approach to computing. He talks us through Medwords, the company's medical app, and reveals a surprising choice for his favourite iPad application.
And from Salmat Digital, executive general manager Paul Marshall explains the logic behind the Lasoo app, an iPad front-end to the Australian shopping catalogue site Lasoo.com.au. He thinks the iPad is the perfect shopping platform.
Plus we have Stilgherrian's usual idiosyncratic look at the week's IT news headlines.
