Chucking Laptop for an iPad

With tablets becoming more advanced in technological terms, the news of consumers ditching their laptops for an iPad for performing their day to day activities is being heard more frequently nowadays.  Some of the consumers find iPad easy to handle and the best way to do shopping online. It is estimated that more than sixty million Americans will own a tablet computer by the end of this year and retailers saying that these devices are commanding an increasing share of online revenues. As per a U.S. survey, forty nine percent of the merchants reported their order value from tablets now exceeds web sales from desktop computer, laptops, and smart phones.

Coming to the facts, the current generation of tablets, including iPad is related more with consuming content than they are about creating it. So in generally it is not recommended to use a tablet or iPad for someone who wants to use it to blog everyday. The iPad is an excellent device for browsing through a magazine, looking up few websites, watching couple of movies during a flight.

There are some applications that help improve the blogging experience on an iPad such as Word Press and Blogsy. The Blogsy app supports a variety of blogging platforms that include Blogger, Posterous, Type Pad, Joomla, and Drupal where the user can type right in the app and it formats the text and allows the user to upload it from iPad to the users’ blog.

Apple Plans For Ipad3 Launch in March: This time there will be no Jobs to oversee it

Steve Jobs was perhaps the most recognizable and most cherished innovator of technology who by the simple act of connecting the dots created products that became the most loved brand of technology. Having beaten his rivals at the very beginning of his career, Steve Jobs created a company that was known for its innovation more than anything else. His demise was a shock and speculations were rife about how the company would proceed with its innovative legacy once the mind behind its success was gone never to return like he once did after his initial ouster from Apple. Just before his death, Apple launched the Iphone 4S in place of the much anticipated and eagerly awaited the world over, Iphone 5. When the initial disappointment subsided, people realized the need for a 4S before a 5 can arrive into the market. Apple had outdone itself again.
