Back to School: Oh, How I Wish the iPad Had Existed in 1982


I’m pretty sure that if I’d had the tools I use today — especially my iPad with an LTE connection and a keyboard case - I would have been a far better student. I would have taken more copious notes in class.


I would have been able to write more polished essays than was possible with even the best 1980s word processor. If my textbooks were available in iPad form, I’d probably read them more thoroughly, and would certainly be more likely to take them everywhere rather than forgetting them at home.


And although the Internet couldn’t have replaced a gigantic library stuffed with printed books and reels of microfilm, it would have been an enormously helpful supplement.

"If someone from the future had traveled back to 1982 and presented me with an iPad, my jaw would have dropped to the floor and my eyes would have ping-ponged out of their sockets and then back into place. But then I would have taken it and used it. And I wouldn’t have any regrets about the matter 31 years later."

I had my typewriter with my white out at college...if I had an ipad I would have definitely used it! Late night reading a breeze with the lights out! Notes and photos on the ipad? WOW!
