Today's managers "don't have to be chained to the control room at all time,” said Mark Bernardo, General Manager of GE’s Intelligent Platforms division, during a featured presentation at the TabletBiz conference in New York this week.
Originally, GE developed apps for "oil fields, waste water plants, offshore [drilling]" and other heavy industries that looked…exactly like the control room. But that, he said in retrospect, was a mistake.
A better use of an app is to capitalize on what tablets do best: provide freedom of motion.
Bernardo recalled that the managers of old would sit behind a desk and monitor [...]

Over the last week, I’ve found myself wondering what Steve Jobs would make of Windows 8 if he were alive today.
It’s quite possible and likely that he would be entirely dismissive or unwilling to comment on the new OS at all.
