Kindle Wireless Reading Device for Managers
Managers using the Kindle Wireless Reading Device to download their materials that are needed for meetings they attend can save on paper and it will be less materials to carry with them from one meeting to another. It will also cut back on manual labor of making a lot of paper copies that are sometime not needed.
The main point of this idea really intrigues me. Kindles are generally not all that compatible with other document types (that holds me back from buying one for myself), but I am very, very interested in what the "next generation" of technology tools (after the laptops get too old!) should look like. My sense is that we'd have different types of technology "packages" for different types of employees. For example, there area many of us who really only do email, web applications (like ITAS, etc) and review documents (or perhaps edit them). Maybe we really only need a tablet-like device. There are also definitely "power users" around here - those who draft regulations, crunch huge files of data, etc. They need a lot of computing horsepower. Does it make sense that maybe not everyone would get the same thing, and if so, then what would the packages look like? Keep in mind that we'd have to keep the total costs at or less than what we basically pay now.
This is a great idea! How many times have you made copies, only to discard them because revisions were made to your documents just before the meeting?
