Today I started writing up a protocol for an experiment on Pages using my MBA. As usual I take my ipad mini everywhere with me, and whilst out between laboratories I bumped into someone who I realised I could discuss my protocol with. Out came the mini from my pocket, and we went through it there and then in the corridor, ammeding things on the fly. I sat back down on my desk, and thanks to iCloud syncing I was good to keep working on it on my MBA straight away.
If thats not productivity I don't know what is.
