Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away

I've been away for a while (something called taxes), but I too got an iPad. In addition to Netflix, crosswords, Marvel comics, and the great e-book functionality; I love the RDP apps.

At our office, everything is run off of a central server via terminal services. Nothing is done on the local computers. We just use Microsoft Remote Desktop or an equivalent program to log in and get stuff done. With the RDP app on the iPad, I can go into a client meeting with the full power of a laptop in a tiny device. I can pull up a client's prior year scanned information, do tax projections in our tax software, and do tax research from the iPad.

In all, it's fun at home; it's useful at work.
