Tech becomes more acceptable in professional sphere
As I looked around the board-room table, I saw a handful of others who also had a shiny 10-inch screen sitting in front of them.
It struck me how much more acceptable not just tablets but technology in general has become in professional situations. Remember the ever-debated question about whether it's rude to be tapping away on your screen during a meeting? Ha!
Today it simply boils down to a matter of convenience, for starters.
For example, I save all documents, PDFs, what not to my Dropbox account. I fire up my HP TouchPad, go to my Dropbox app and I'm ready to go for the board meeting. I'm not fumbling around with dozens upon dozens of loose papers or folders or binders or whatever. And my tablet fits in my purse. And did I mention it only set me back $150?
I love technology.
