Singular yet part of a flock

I commuted by bicycle today, and then I also went for a walk late in the evening; in all, 2 1/2 hours of exercise today, not bad. It was needed, as this week has been rather busy at work, one thing after another, and I didn't manage to catch up with things to do today either.

Well, so it is sometimes.

I have been thinking about the iPad recently, and also discussed with colleagues the topic of using an iPad for work. Is it good enough to replace a laptop? What can one do with it, and what you can't? It seems that it is rather good for storing and reading documents for meetings and travel. But writing, that is another thing. Maybe one would get used to the virtual keyboard.

There is also a very good, full keyboard that is easy to attach to the iPad. I have one and I must confess that I hardly ever use it, but it does work very well.

@James: Thanks, that is good to know. I guess using an iPad is a skill that one acquires only by using it. I remember seeing some people typing rather fast on the virtual keyboard, though I don't know how accurate you can type with it.
