Nashville Tech Feed #14 – iPad Luv and the Newton. Everything has Changed

The iPad arrived on April 3rd and Apple fan-boys lined up as usual; some of the Nashville Tech Feed crew did as well. Before we picked up our iPads we interviewed several people in the “non” reserved line getting an insight on why they wanted the device. A curve ball question was thrown but you’ll have to listen to the podcast to see what is was. In episode #14 you’ll hear these interviews including a surprise guest along with discussions on how the iPad changes things not only in the tech world but some of Nashville's biggest business sectors. We end with the usual “What We’re Consuming” segment. Enjoy!
