Quote of the Week - 10/10/11

Matthew Morrissey, executive director of the New Bedford Economic Development Council, said he and his staff use iPads and iPhones daily to communicate with each other and with potential investors in the city.

According to Morrissey, he can use the iPad and its GIS mapping capabilities to represent a particular geography or building when discussing a real estate deal, or can use Google Earth on the iPad to demonstrate spatial relationships, capabilities that weren't available even two years ago.

That's from a SouthCoastToday (Mass south shore) article on the day to day impact of Steve Jobs and Apple.
