Yes, find Rafael Zeier:

in the Morning to 10 in the editors. I wiggle the mouse, I type wildly on the keyboard, but the two PC monitors at my workplace, which remain black. Then remember me, I have not driven the PC is still not high.

This is not an isolated case. In the last few months happened to me that often. I get half past 7 or half past 8 in the train, on the flap, the iPad, and off you go. On the editorial arrived, I don't like to wait until the PC is booted up, and all the documents still open. I prefer to stay on the iPad, and do exactly where I got it to work at the station part.

As I made in 2013 for this paper, the Experiment and one week with Tablets have worked, that was quite a Stunt, and with all sorts of compromises and Tricks connected.

Today I call the iPad is the best writing machine I've ever had. But of course, it is much more. It is the most personal and the most reliable Computer I've ever had. The touch I speak now blind. A mouse I no longer miss a long time (although you can use the iPad now, too).

The iPad comes to the Ideal of Personal Computer closer
than ever.

The iPad has been with me in the last few years stressful press conferences and I never leave it hanging. Videos, Podcasts, Photos, Texts? No Problem at all. Even in a rumpligen Bus, I wrote this at the last minute already the finished article and photos edited. With the own Internet connection, and the endurance of the battery, it is always and especially for a long time.

to thanks to smarter Apps, and the ever-improving iOS I now no longer feel, to have something to renounce. The iPad Pro I can connect thanks to USB-C all kinds of devices: monitors, cameras, hard drives, microphones, etc. If need be, I can save a file in a folder or two Apps side-by-side.

the Best thing about The iPad is that it is only a professional like me makes, in the meantime, the best services, but also for computer beginners and computer objectors. I'm always amazed at how quickly children and seniors, make friends with the Tablet. Of course, you only use a fraction of what I do. But for what you want to do on a Computer, it is enough and very important: You do not need to worry constantly that something is broken.

Thus seen, is PC the iPad is not only better, it comes closer to the Ideal from the Personal Computer than ever.

PS: This Text I wrote on the iPad and for the newspaper layout adjusted.

For almost ten years, Apple is trying to clarify the question of why the iPad is good. There's a Problem: Apple's a lot of things can Tablet very neatly. But it is not in any discipline of the Champion.

Yes, of course: You can read browsing and emails. But that goes with the Smartphone as well. The Tablet is suitable for Videos and games. But this is also true for smart TV. For digital books, in turn, an E-Book reading device is the better choice. And who will make notes or to draw, using an iPad. Or paper and a pencil.

For the past ten years, the missing USP. And Apple has, as yet, can neither conjure up, although Steve Jobs had introduced to the iPad, but as a "magical device". Microsoft has made it smarter: In the case of Windows devices, is the operation with pen and Finger, an additional function that is activated on demand: by tries to undock in his Convertible with the keyboard or to the rear does not work when you need them.

For the past ten years, the characteristic that is missing from the iPad.

to make the iPad more than a sleek coffee-table accessory, Apple get the idea to position its Tablet as "the future of the computer". The group is not tired to emphasize, that the iPad was grown Per as powerful as most PC and all professional claims. To the claim to substantiate, Apple has introduced a lot of things that Steve Jobs originally for the sake of simplicity omitted was: There is now a file-App. You have the ability to have two Apps side by side run. And external storage media can be connected, as external monitors.

this leads to The absurd Situation that Apple reinvents the wheel – and in Fan circles, innovations are hailed in Personal computers for 30 years.

And Despite all efforts, are my Mac and my Windows PC superior to the iPad house: I'm not dependent on Apps from the Store, but can install Software from any source. My Browser I extend with third party modules, which increases my productivity immensely. I use at will system programs that are iPad for security reasons is inadmissible. I can also set up multiple user accounts – or even a different operating system such as Linux, if Windows or Mac OS more like.

And I guess on the PC the longer it is, the more: He is a dedicated work. This means that I can turn it on to work and when I'm done, then I'll drive him down. This promotes the Work-Life Balance immensely – other than that, iPad is never switched off and to work with you any time of the day and night time.
