NY's Mayor Bloomberg Now Turns to iPad for Daily Briefings

bloomberg ipadNew York City may soon be run from an iPad touchscreen.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who got his iPad 3G last month, unveiled the tablet at a meeting in Staten Island on Tuesday.

As the Daily News reports, Bloomberg bought the device at the behest of his scheduler, Shea Fink, and used it on Tuesday in place of his daily briefing book. The mayor told his audience that the device will save both time and paper.

“He wants to try using it for speeches, as well as…for reference - things like news clips, key budget documents,” a spokesman for the mayor said in an email.

The spokesman added that the mayor uses the tablet to (naturally) read Bloomberg News and check traffic on Google maps.

Beyond that, the mayor is still figuring out what else to do with his iPad.

“I haven’t gotten that far,” he said on Tuesday.

For years, Bloomberg has used his iPod for Spanish lessons, a spokesman said in an email, adding that the mayor tends to listen to music on the car radio.
