I’m now running the School of Thinking from my iPad.

We will be designing a series of  SOT applications especially for iPad utility. They will be young, fast and scientific.

I got my first Mac in January 1984. My friend, Peter Bensinger, and I literally ran to the store to get one each on the day they came on sale. I’ve continually used many Macs since then and have designed the online SOT on these Macs since 1995. Most SOT lessons were written and sent to SOT members from my Macs. There’s no doubt in my mind that without these unique, marvelous and elegantly designed tools that SOT would not be what it is today.

As you can imagine, I was delighted to be blind-copied on this email from Steve Jobs to his team with news of Apple’s historic milestone:

Subject: Today


As most of you already know, at the close of today’s stock market, Apple’s market cap (stock price x number of shares) surpassed Microsoft’s market cap.

As I once said in a company email sent a long time ago: “Stocks go up and down, and things may be different tomorrow, but I thought it was worth a moment of reflection today.”

And so it is again.

Walt Disney used to say to his team: “We’re only as good as our next picture.” Well, we’re only as good as our next amazing new product.  Back to work…

  1. Thank you.
    I now have a functional PDF reader and therefor a functional IPad. It didn’t show up when I first went looking and the same reader for iPhone did not work to transfer PDF from my computer onto my IPad. This reader does/has. Yeah!

  2. Hi Nancy

    There are several free apps to read pdf’s on the Ipad. And if you want to pay $0.99, then I recommend the GoodReader app for both pdf’s and Word doc’s.


  3. Having just purchased my IPad, I have one disappointment to speak of, which I trust will be remedied soon. That issue is the inability to transfer PDF documents. I do a lot of reading on the computer and more and more documents are sent PDF in order to cross platforms seamlessly. In fact, I began to feel like the IPad was just a ridiculously overpriced toy. I have searched for solutions and am now able to do what I need to, but at the loss of formatting details and pictures/diagrams which is a nuisance, but as I said, I trust it will be remedied really soon…. so get on that will you 😉
