Working without a computer Weekend Edition

Last week, I started a series of posts documenting the experience of working without a computer. The first post with all the details of why and how can be found here:

Since this post covers the weekend, it is going to be relatively short as much of the time was spent traveling and catching up. Much of that included consuming data versus creation of data. For data consumption, the iPad is a great platform to work with. It works well, especially when you are spending time on an airplane where battery life counts.

Interestingly, I found that I spent more time using the iPhone versus the iPad this weekend. There was little to nothing that required a larger screen nor a keyboard. Plus, the portability of the phone was much more convenient than pulling out the iPad.

That being said, while this blog post *could* have been composed on the iPhone, it makes it much easier to do with a keyboard.

Today starts another work-week and the potential to test the boundaries of the iPad once again. Stay tuned for the next installment of ‘Working without a computer.’
