Paper is the new laptop

I went to a SharePoint forum today. For those unaware, SharePoint is a platform designed for collaborating, sharing and generally working better together online.

I was the only person in the auditorium of around 150 people with a laptop on my knees. Everyone else was scrawling notes on paper, the lady next to me this morning (a journalist) ferociously scribbling shorthand.

It certainly didn’t compare to this recent shot of students in a lecture at the University of Missouri. How do you like them Apples?

    Solved Dr Watson, it’s probably real.

    It’s not a university where I would have expected more diversity of laptop but the Missouri School of Journalism.

    You can see by looking at these FAQs what the story is for Apple.
