A client asked me over to help him move some of his documents and misc information over to his new iPad from his laptop. Not a big deal. I set up Dropbox for all of his documents and showed him how to use it. Showed him how Photo Stream will handle the pictures he wants to sync, etc. That all seemed to work well enough. But, he wants to dispose of the laptop. (Don't blame him, it's a 5 year old Toshiba running Windows Vista). He wants to have his iPad and iPhone as his only computing devices. He's a pilot and travels a lot in his work. He loves the small size of the iPad, very convenient. My brain kind of locked up when he asked. I've been a computer guy for 25+ years. How do you remove your only computer from the mix? What? No computer? You need some kind of device to be the anchor for all of your digital information. Don't you? Two possible solutions would be iCloud and / or Dropbox. You can get 50GB of iCloud storage a year for $100 or 100GB of Dropbox storage for $100. Dropbox would probably be the better choice. Just can't wrap my head around this working out that well. With 37GB of photos you'd have some issues. You'd need a 64GB iPad if you wanted to have all the photos offline. Don't think Dropbox could sync all that to an iOS device - isn't there a 2GB limit or other size limit for Dropbox on iOS? Anyway, part of me wants to just say "dude you're crazy, you gotta have a PC lying around". But the other part is intrigued with the possibilities and the thought that this type of setup is the future.
