In contrast, using the iPad on an airplane was easy. I didn’t have to go through any “contortions.” It was simple to use.
Of the four airplanes I flew on this weekend, two of them had wi-fi networking. I used the Apple iPad to surf the web, read and write email messages, comment on newsletter articles, and more, all while flying at 37,000 feet.
I could have done the same with a laptop computer, but it would have been more difficult.
