Have to start somewhere

A coffee table book on an iPad chronicling aviation history. Steve Jobs would be proud! Seriously, I've come across several companies leveraging the state-of-the-art visual display and interactive capabilities of the iPad (as well as other tablets) as a marketing/information tool. A great use of the technology and one that might get engineers interested in higher utility applications that can actually help them get their every day jobs done.

Wow, what bad timing.  My son, who got an iPad when he enrolled in university just sold it.  I would have liked to view this, but I don't think that $500 is worth it.  Frankly, he spends lots of time reading books (from novels to textbooks) on his Kindle. He sold the iPad for the money and becuase he wanted an MP3 player for music.

I'd like to see this, too. But alas, no iPad. I didn't realize Boeing was pushing 100. My goodness, they launched not long after the Wright Brothers' flight.

Coffee table book on an iPad! Great, maybe I'll get to see it on my next trip to the dentist in the waiting room. And imagine having up to date magazines to read in the waiting rooms via iPads!

I will have to try to see if there is a version for my tablet (not an iPad).

Boeing 787

Interesting to hear that Boeing is now willingly parting with information about the 787. Until recently, getting information about the 787 was like pulling teeth.

Elizabeth is it just a product info app or any other intensions are behind it. I mean any other functionality like acessing boeing website, contacting customer care centre for seeking further info's through the apps or any other one to one communications are possible.

As a future pilot, iPad owner and electrical designer of airborne avionics mainly for Boeing aircrafts I look forward to viewing their chronicles.
