Publisher's Note
Rob Nance, Publisher The one constant is change, right? If you have started using an iPad in any way for your accounting practice or business, please let me know. AccountingWEB readers would be interested in finding out exactly how you are incorporating the device into your daily work life. I’ve generally heard positive comments about the iPad, but not much feedback from accountants. It seems that quite a few accountants are sort of in the same boat that I am with the iPad. We already have a laptop, maybe a PC as well, a PDA…where does the iPad fit into the mix? Can it replace something we already have? Is there enough benefit to the iPad to own and maintain yet another communications device?
