iPad User? You And George Bush…

iPad users have much in common with George Bush- he LOVES his iPad too!

President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush may be BlackBerry addicts, but Apple’s iPad is their new must-have gadget. In an interview for Yahoo’s Newsmakers series, Laura Bush said her husband “loves” his iPad. “He reads the Wall Street Journal on it in the morning before the paper even is thrown,” she noted. And his favorite app? “Scrabble is the one that George now seems to be playing constantly,” she said. “Like, I’m trying to get his attention; ‘I’m still here.'”

I think, in light of this revelation, it’s fair to say that George Bush is the paradigmatic iPad user: iPad users are George Bushes.

    Jim – let me show you at SBL how incredibly useful this 1.5lb wonder is for someone who is in LOTS of meetings and travels a lot. You may change your mind. (And if you are interested, I have a post on its utility: http://targuman.org/blog/2010/10/03/using-the-ipad-research-meetings-and-fun/)
