Test-Driving the iPad

With all of the hoopla surrounding Apple’s newest gadget, NCSU Libraries (which already loans students everything from laptops and digital cameras to scanners, eBook readers and GPS units) wanted to put a few in the hands of a few NC State students to see what they really think.

Do they like it? Do they hate it? Would the iPad be helpful as they go through their normal educational routine?

Earlier this week, University Communications and the Libraries teamed up to give these five students a creative online outlet for their musings, reviews and comments. It’s gone extraordinarily well – our iPad-related pageviews have eclipsed the 3,000+ mark in less than 48 hours.

So far, comments have run the gamut from “OMG!” to “What was Apple thinking?” as the bloggers download Apps, browse the Web and attempt to do everything they normally would, both in and out of the classroom.

And if you’ve already visited the site, take another look – our students will be posting day and night for the next week or so.

Passion Rules!
