Sometimes we get dragged kicking and screaming to the game... and some times we arrive rather early... and in the case of the iPad revolution, we can easily boast about being an early adopter... and an unrepentant fan of this 'game-changing' device. My reading habits have changed, my working habits have been modified and my personal and professional life have been aided by this amazing device... and I am assured that we ain't seen nothing yet... and if that future includes truly sublime efforts like ForeFlight's Mobile HD app, then we simply can't wait. We love this thing -- a lot.
Pioneering Turboprop Tries To Adjust To Tough Market
ANN has learned that 60 more people have been laid off, as of
Monday, in the third of a series of layoffs as the company tightens
its belts and works to ride out a tough economy and what has to be
a lackluster order book. Quest's Head of Human Resources confirmed
the layoffs but refused to go into much detail about the company's
state other than to confirm that there are 'still orders on the
books' and the company is doing nothing more than "what it has to
do to last through this all."
