… would make the iPad a rather dull computer. But I’m happy to report that I found a serious application for it. This week, I’m at the WOC 2010 in Berlin, the World Ophthalmic Conference. It started with a few computer hiccups on the side of the event managers and no one could register and print out their schedules and identity badges. Eventually, the hostesses gave up and let us in anyway.

Back home in ground level ophthalmology, we often work through these conferences in our local MD’s circle. I suspect these notes won’t need much work to change them into a passable Keynote presentation. After each lecture, I emailed the resulting Pages document to my Gmail account, so it’s safe (?) in the cloud.
The lectures weren’t dull, either. Pictured below is Prof. U. Schiefer (at right) in a hands-on demonstration of perimetry parameters with some shanghaied colleagues.
