After yesterday’s announcement of Apple’s new iPad one would think that it would be the first thing I write about. Nope. While it is interesting, I will write about that later. What I think is even more interesting is a little, quietly-announced application called Configurator for schools and businesses. This App will let users simultaneously set up and manage many iOS devices ( , iPhones, etc) from a central location. Also, the description states that the App will let the manager “Check out a device to a user and restore the user’s settings and data on that device” and then “Check in a device from a user and back up the data for later use, possibly on a different device.” All in all, this is one application to keep an eye on – and once I get a fleet of iPads to test this on, I’ll be sure to write more.
