Apple is pushing its mobile devices in a big way. And because it is, we’re starting to see changes in how businesses and educators incorporate these devices into their worlds. In this episode I speak with Macworld contributor Joel Mathis about the iPhone and iPad in business and education. (Note that Joel’s two-year-old son makes his presence known during our talk. If the joyful sounds produced by toddlers drives you to distraction, feel free to tune in next week.)

Before that interview, I opine on Apple, its products, and the sometimes unreasonable expectations we have of each.

Show Notes

In our discussion, Joel refers to two stories he recently wrote—How business is putting the iPhone to work and How schools are putting the iPad to work. I spoke with one of the subjects of the latter article, Dr. Bill Wiecking. You can hear what he had to say in Podcast #204: Apple and sustainable living.
