Work Beyond Mac

By Jason Cipriani
For many, Apple’s iPad is more than just a tablet, it’s a tool that has, in some cases, completely replaced the laptop. Each episode of Work Beyond Mac will feature guests who’ve made the switch from a traditional computer over to the iPad. We’ll take a look at the apps, accessories and services that have made the transition possible, as well as dive into the tasks that may still require a Mac or PC to complete. If you’d like to be a guest, have suggestions or want to talk all things iPad, please email me: jason@jasoncipriani.com.
