January 30, 2015: Tablets just got a lot more useful after Microsoft released the final versions of Office for Android, which followed a similar release on the iPad. http://www.informationweek.com/software/productivity-collaboration-apps/microsoft-outlook-office-on-ios-and-android-first-look/d/d-id/1318881. Ask students to read the short post and answer the following:
(1) Could tablets change how people do their work?

(3) Would a tablet provide an excellent tool for reengineering that job?
(4) Outline a possible new workflow that would be enabled to help make the job easier or more productive.
