See Full Story

Apple recently cited a handful of iPad-friendly Web sites -- a small list that includes CNN, Reuters, the New York Times, Vimeo and the White House. With the iPad buzz having reached dizzying heights, it is safe to assume that most everyone who has a Web site is at least thinking about how to render it iPad-friendly as well. It may be surprising to some that it can be done in one afternoon, depending on the complexity of the site. However, if a site requires significant investment to retool it for the iPad, it might be a good idea to wait a while.

Does the technology really matter?

Excluding Flash among other plug-ins is clearly going to be a short-term issue for the iPad and good news to competitors and vendors. However, I personally think an open standard (HTML5) is better than proprietary technology in the long run. Go Apple.

The real success of the iPad lies with the content (apps). I recently wrote a post on this for marketers. Let me know what you think.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
