Okay, it appears iPads are taking over. I'm sitting among about 30 parents at a volleyball tournament (all three of our kids play volleyball). Typically, in a group like this there would be about 6-7 laptops out on tables as parents try to pass the time between matches. But laptops are so… 2010. Scanning the room today, I see one laptop, and SIX iPads with 20 feet of me. It appears volleyball parents discovered the iPad this Christmas, and decided it's much better suited for passing the time at tournaments.
Of course, that count did not include the iPad in my own backpack. So the number should be seven. In about 40 square feet.
Congratulations, Mr. Jobs… you've done it again!
