iPad “Scores Big” with Kos as Laptop Replacement for Travel

Markos Moulitsas (founder of the political website Daily Kos) replaced his laptop with an iPad for a business trip last week, and says it ably handled his technology needs:

It did those tasks perfectly…The iPad filled my needs seamlessly, with only minor hassles. It was better than a laptop, allowing me to travel more efficiently.

Just like that, flying has gotten quite a bit easier.
