Apple has a way of selling things.  They get sexy.  They get elitism.  They get that my developers will hit me up for their own iPads in the name of “research and development”.   

But will there be a special place for the iPad in the annals of staffing software?   Oh we’ll pretend it does.  We’ll be demoing our mobile apps with it at conferences.  TempWorks gets sexy.  We get elitism as well. 

I went to Best Buy last night and found the Apple iPad table surrounded by curiosity seekers.  Some were reading Winnie the Pooh, but the most serious were playing on the piano program. 

The iPad.  Too heavy, too expensive, too same-old-same-old.   Not the best choice for mobile recruiting software.  Not practical for desktop recruitment either.
