Apple Debuts New 'Life on iPad' Webpage, Documenting Ways iPad Improves People's Lives

Apple has published a new page on its website dubbed "Life on iPad", which documents six stories of people using their iPads in various ways to improve their lives. The page, which was first discovered by The Verge, also includes copy highlighting how people have used the iPad in ways that Apple hadn't foreseen.

The six stories focus on Siemens Energy-Wind Service, champion speed skater Bridie Farrell, Palmaz Vineyards, Riviera Racing Team owner and driver Mark Post, Broadway director and choreographer Jeff Whiting, and Dr. Itaru Endo, director of digestive surgery and liver transplantation for Yokohoma City University.

All six stories detail how each person and/or company is able to use the iPad to enhance either their lives, careers, and businesess or others' lives. For instance, Dr. Endo's story discusses how he and his team created iPad apps to to reduce the possibility of complications during surgery.

The app uses augmented reality to overlay complex vascular systems during operations. This reveals liver perfusion patterns that are invisible to the human eye, giving greater insight into the exact location of certain blood vessels. The app also shows local blood flow territories and assesses potential risks in real time. “The visualization of liver blood vessels puts surgeons at ease,” Dr. Endo explains, “and it helps to ensure that the right incisions are made at the right time.”

The new page also includes the "Life on iPad" video that debuted at the company's iPad Air event in October and stays in line with Apple's recent theme of highlighting the iPad's ability to be used for a wide variety of tasks, from everything to games and media consumption and creation to business and educational needs.

Apple has become just another megacorp going after the lowest common denominator o customer. Tim Cook the beancounter is turning them into Samsung West and living off the hip, innovative reputation that Steve Jobs dedicated his life to creating for Apple. Soon the rest of the industry will pass Apple by; it has become painfully clear that all Tim Cook knows how to do is crunch numbers because his track record of innovation while at Apple is flat out abysmal.
Wow. I was having a really nice day, then I read your post.

We get it. The iPad is great. Everyone needs an iPad. The world would be **** without the iPad.

Now please, use the time, money, and expertise of whatever it took to make this and accelerate other product development.
Right, because the ad people could really be working on new Macs right now.

Also, are the MacRumors push notifications not working anymore?

Why are you not running Apple? Why is life so unfair?

Seriously, these are some great spots Apple put together. Showing how people use products in everyday life/work. How to apply it to real world stuff.

That's the most creative version of "OMG Apple is doomed!" that I've seen yet; nicely done.
