NYC mayor Bloomberg loves his iPad


New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg loves his iPad, apparently -- he carries it with him everywhere, uses it for briefings, and even reads speeches off of it, as seen above. He's checking weather in the places he's heading off to vacation at, and he's reading in iBooks, too -- lately it's "The Fires" by Joe Flood and "Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition" by Daniel Okent.

Very cool to see someone so busy and so important trying to seriously use Apple's magical device to improve their day-to-day. And even the Mayor realizes that what he's going is important -- he's consciously trying to go "paperless." Glad the iPad could help him. "It's amazing," he said at a tech conference recently. "I told Steve Jobs the other day, if he can improve on this, it'll really be amazing. I just, every time I play with it, I discover something new."

Wait, improve on the iPad? That's a tall order, Mr. Mayor. But maybe Cupertino will see what it can do.
