Welcome to this new podcast series dedicated to supporting the community based on the Meetup Group (at www.meetup.com) called the AUSTIN iPAD NOVICE USERS FOR SMALL BUSINESSES AND ENTREPRENEURS.

This meetup group is focused on sharing information and resources to help an Entrepreneur or Small Business Owner determine if the iPad(R) from Apple(R) can be a significant business tool for their Entrepreneurial venture or not--in areas of accessories, apps, support, connectivity, lifestyle and business applications and justification.
