6 Reasons Ordinary Pastors May Benefit From the iPad

I’ve been waiting for something like this – a handheld device that I could consume information very easily and most comfortably.  Apple may have done it and I think it will have a number of benefits for those in pastoral ministry. If you missed it, here’s the video of the new Apple iPad: Will/Should ordinary pastors and people use the newly unveiled Apple iPad? This pastor probably will, and I think many, many will also. The Kindle has been a big draw among many in ministry and I can’t help but think that the iPad will be another Apple technological game-changer.  Here’s a few reasons why I think so: 1. Magazines/Newspapers can now survive.  The only reason I subscribe to a print newspaper right now, is because my wife wants the coupons from the Sunday paper.  I NEVER read the print paper.  But I do subscribe to a number of newspaper and magazine RSS feeds.  In fact, I can subscribe to the sections of the paper I want and skip the rest.  I noticed that my wife was already starting to clip coupons from the internet.  Outisde of my wife’s coupon newspaper, I no longer have any subscriptions to any print publications – and I don’t miss the mess.  However, I would be interested in reading papers and magazines on an electronic device that I could hold in my hand and was bigger than my iPhone.  Especially if I could cut and paste quotes and sections into Evernote and tag them.  That would help me in quickly clipping, filing, and finding quotes and illustrations for sermons and doing so...

Apple Wow

UPDATE:  Check out THIS article that says what I liked about the store is really not all that good.  Hmm. Apple is an awesome experience in my book. Since recently converting to exclusively using Macs in my work and personal worlds, I have continually been amazed at the ease, simplicity – well, the enjoyment of working with them. I haven’ had a downside yet (I would like a little more RAM in my iMac – but that will be soon, and I’ll write about the experience). One experience, yesterday, had me wowed with Apple. It was a first for me and I left enjoying the Apple experience all over again.  It is simple, not particularly important; but it did leave an impression on me. While waiting for my wife and kids to arrive from a train ride, I was contemplating how to use the extra time. Find an Apple store, of course. So, while driving, I opened up Google search on my iPhone and said (I love the voice capability of that app) “Apple Store Oceanside, California.” It found it “presto,” and with one click I had it pull up a map to the store from my current location. Great, 8 miles from where I would meet up with the family. When I walked into the store I was immediately greeted by one of the “blue shirted” dudes who welcomed me to “Apple.” I really wasn’t looking for anything in particular, just wanted to look around, which they encouraged me to do.
