Do you have an iPad (or some similar tablet that you pretend is an iPad)? Have you convinced yourself that you didn’t just drop $500 or so on a big Angry Birds device? No, of course not; you’ll use it for business, including e-mail, document review/editing, coordinating meetings, and so on, only then playing a round or two of flinging flightless fowl against fortress walls.
Of course, people like me (without an iPad) might think people like you (with one) hardly use it for anything but game playing with the occasional e-mail sent with the snarky “Sent From My iPad” added for good measure, just to ensure we know our place. The reality is, though, that there are actually lots of cool ways a tablet can be used to help businesses in many different industries including medical, retail, construction, personal care and so many others. It all just takes finding the right app and getting creative with how you can leverage the technology.

Bottom line…mobility is power and those who get creative with how to use technology will stand apart from their competition!
