Google docs on iPad

I suppose that many readers of this blog use Google Docs tool to write, making spread sheet, presentation, forms etc and share it. Now all those tools are accessible in full from the iPad. Just point Safari on typing username and password to have full access to word processor, and spreadsheet. It's not almost perfect and Safari for iPad create few problems on usability side...but it's a great step away make from Google.

The iPad will change photography?

It's a question in the mind and words of many photographers, gallery owners, photo editors etc
Will the iPad change photography?
The discussion is open, here a series of useful articles.
I'm glad to paste here few key words: "His constant use of the word FILES got me thinking. This guy doesn’t understand Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs doesn’t talk about files. He talks about pictures and music, etc. After all, these FILES (in the context of this post) are pictures. It’s the pictures that matter not the files. Apple makes products you can DO stuff with. And in this case, you can use the iPad to look at and share pictures, not files."
