Something for your iPad … or not

Although our collection of e-white papers are perfectly suited to be downloaded and read on the new devices, you can reap the benefits of the digital publications on your good old desktop computer.

By Mike Davin, online editor, Boating Industry — Since the iPad has been on the market for a full 24 hours now, I'm going to go ahead and assume you all have one.

What's that? Not yet? Well, don't feel bad. I hear they're still pretty hard to get.

And as cool as it might be, the iPad doesn't actually give you access to anything you couldn't already get before. For example, although our collection of e-white papers are perfectly suited to be downloaded and read on the new devices, you can reap the benefits of the digital publications on your good old desktop computer. We've been producing the white papers — each centered on a different marine-related topic — for a while now, and the complete collection is available in our archives.

We've covered eProfitability, Water Access, Marketing, Service, Pre-Owned Boats, Inventory Management and other topics that our readers have told us are important to them.

If you've never had a chance to read them – or never knew they were there – take a moment to browse the titles. And if you have a chance to read one on your new iPad ... let me know if you think I need to pick one up.

  1. Mike,

    I read your post, reviewed the white papers and now writing this comment all from my new iPad. The white-papers look phenomenal on the iPad. Great job! Our company sponsored the audio recordings from last years MDCE, but maybe we should have sponsored this page instead

    I am liking the simplistic nature of the iPad thus far. The sparse feature set and simple design promotes focus. Because you can only access one application at a time it promotes focus on a single task rather than providing for a means to become distracted by interruptions as PCs are prone to do. I am going to talk more about this in an upcoming marinemanagementtoday.com blog.

  2. Glad to hear the white papers are looking good on the iPad. We're definitely interested in pursuing more digital publications as the iPad and similar devices become more ubiquitous.

    Thanks for the quick iPad review as well. There are times I could definitely benefit from slowing down and concentrating on one thing at a time. (I just counted and I have 19 tabs open on my browser right now.)
