Yes I agree to this notion. I'm all for the introduction of iPads into the education system, both junior and senior. One of the small reasons is that it's more convenient than to carry heavy books around all day.

John Purificati's comment, March 31, 2013 9:58 AM
I'm hoping that at some point Apple will make the iPad a little bit more affordable. Hopefully, market pressure from the android world will change their minds.

Don Dea's curator insight, March 21, 2013 11:50 PM

With the proliferation of alerts, targeted push notifications and mobile-only deals, it seems that smartphones and tablets are ending consumer predictability.

Human behavior is as unpredictable as it has always been. The only difference now is that there is an overwhelming amount of data about this behavior, and because it is siloed in different places, it is more difficult to build a customer lifecycle or extract insights around attribution.

“I don't think mobile will end predicable behavior per se, but it certainly has a destabilizing effect on brand marketers,” said Cezary Pietrzak, director of marketing at Appboy, New York.
