I samband med helger får vi ofta mer tid över till annat. Och jag ser att några pratar om iPad i de sociala flödena. “Vad är så speciellt med iPaden?” är en rätt vanlig fråga. Ja, det beror ju på… Den är inte för alla – men definitivt för mig! Här är mina skäl:

…den har ca 3 ggr längre batteritid än de flesta laptopar

…den har överlägsen skärm och ljud
…den funkar bättre på små ytor – perfekt på flyget och i taxi
…den ljusstarka skärmen ihop med det stora batteriet gör den mer lämpad för utearbete än laptopen
…den är en väldigt bra diskussions/skissplatta för utveckling
…den är lättare i knät än en laptop
…den har markant bättre täckning på 3g pga större antenn än iphone – så man kan bambusa i fler miljöer
…den är mer intuitiv att arbeta med – se en 1åring – de förstår många av gesterna som kan nyttjas
…den är inte “jobbet” – den är litet mer lekfull som maskin än datorn
Vilka fördelar hittar du?

I just found a GREAT reason to get the iPad2: in areas of poor 3G coverage where your iPhone is out of reach your iPad often finds access.- this due to its better antenna and hence reception. However – in my current version, no camera is available.- but the iPad2’s got one!

Maybe rumors – but two different sources claim software and hardware to be scheduled for fall this year:

Mashable – hardware

TechCrunch – software

Since the current iPad2 is merely a face lift – we may end up with a great event in September releasing

iPhone 5

IOS 5.0

iPad 3

What a great ending of this summer!

Are you having AHA moments? When do you know, what does it mean and how do you keep track? Here’s what happened to me here in Stockholm, Sweden yesterday:

I certainly had an AHA moment. Being in the finalizing phase with my first released book my brain is probably extremely alert, at least compared to my normal state of mind…. I have refined a rough concept and it’s now ready to be launched to scale. Great thing with the time we’re all living in is – you can probe ideas prior to the action – by the use of blogs. So, preparing for a roll-out of about 20 books – I try them, one by one by posting specific areas. One of them being  Project Management. That blog “LUCK in Project Management” attracted quite a crowd – including now a prospect! We met yesterday and when he told me of a speech on lateral thinking it got me started, but this was not the AHA momement – but when we moved in to action – how to really plan excellent projects – we both love the WBS phase – the “work breakdown structure” – or “tree structure” or “root structure” to be precisely correct… He then said one of the tools they considered lacked this important phase of planning…

THAT was the AHA moment – I find lots of people I train in PM to find it extremely hard to accept that in the WBS phase, we disregard time, dependencies and logic flows. We ONLY focus on work blocks. And to do this REALLY well – you need to let go, to go lateral in your thinking. The following tools in PM are pretty linear (actually not ALL) – hence a PM needs several skills – including how to make the staff go lateral.

To finalize: I, too. do a lot of note-taking. But papers get lost – I use Evernote on my iPhone, iPad and Mac Book Pro. Great tool, being improved and excellent interfaces with other media. That – and Dropbox.

I’d be happy to hear of your AHA moments – and what you use them for?

I carried the smallest HyperMac spare battery pac on my trip to Göteborg/Gothenburg on the westcoast of Sweden. Loosing power in my Mac Book Pro, I tried charging it with the HM. It worked just fine – not sure of how much, but it readily gave me another hour-and-a-half of work (including charging my iPhone, used for tethering). Great stuff!

Exciting is a small word. More here!

Some of the folders and keyboard solutions will fit the new iPad better, some worse. Stay tuned! (as I try out the Zaggmate)

Once your business cards are scanned – you can recycle them – clearing off space in your office – and your
computer can make all data trackable. great stuff, saves time – and you will find the “long tail effect” to be
true for business cards as well!
