RantiPads, tablets... Does anyone use them for WORK? (Or anything REAL?) Pin

So, working in huge offices, hundreds of people...
And NOONE uses any form of tablet.
It's just too impractical, cumbersome, etc..

Yet, a handful of silly managers keep on bringing up tablet ideas to me. How I should be making this and that for tablets. BUT, noone uses those sh*ts!
Moreover, would you really trust apple or google, who have a long history of snooping on people, gathering TMI (too much information), tracking users and usage, with critical & restricted business documents? Synchronizing documents in the clouds, sending them over internet..? They're not even that portable.


Anyway, seeing hundreds of office workers, I still don't see anyone using it. Whether it be for notes in meetings, etc.. Well, noone uses them -at all.

The ONLY usage I've ever heard of that seems reasonable is to entertain 5 year-olds with silly games.

Added the "rant" button now, because I'm reaching rage levels over these over-hyped, over-advertized, over-blogged (mostly paid ads in reality), pieces of sssshhhhhiiiiAAAAAARRRG.
Tablets are like the windows millenium of computing. A failed experiment.
Good to entertain children, good for wannabe-a-modern managers who try to seem technically interested and up to date. I'd burn them all (the tablets, not the children and managers. lol).
