MacVoicesTV #12128: Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus Talks About Tablet Choices, the iPad mini, and Teaching Tech
Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus shares some unique perspectives on the iPad mini and how it compares to other tablet options. There are more than a few overlooked aspects of choosing a tablet device, and many people overlook them in their quest to spend the least money. Bob outlines some of them, and why he believes the iPad mini is in it for the long haul. Bob also talks about why his experiences as a college professor make him a better tech author, looks forward to what he will be doing at Macworld | iWorld 2013, and why he’s looking forward to it more than the shows from “the old days.”
