I don't mean that you're wrong about how the iPad is being used, but rather wrong about how you should approach using one. As you said, prabirc, "the iPad is a boon for people who want something simple," and simplicity should be a priority in any corporate environment for efficiency and economy. The average corporate user doesn't need everything that's in MS Office; it's a grossly overloaded, over-featured and over-burdened package that caters to the needs of a mere 1% of content creators and goes far, far beyond the needs of the average salesman, secretarial pool, manager or executive.
The old rule of K.I.S.S., Keep It Simple and Stupid, is just as viable and important today as it was 150 years ago. Flash 7 is not simple but it is lazy; just a little more effort will give you capabilities that are far more efficient and long-lasting. Don't blame the tool for being too simple, blame the software for being too complicated.
