So you're saying there may be a chance to one day have a port on an iPad? Okay... Probably not but its wishful thinking.
Your MacBook could one day save space by combining two ports into one.

"Combined Input Port," an Apple patent application published Thursday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, describes a way to unite a USB port and a memory card slot into a single unit.
Combining two ports with two different connectors poses a challenge. But the invention envisioned by Apple would vary the depth and position of the respective connectors, allowing for both a USB device and a memory card to be inserted.

It would have been nice to have these features and iOS 7 out now (as we deploy ipads to all of our faculty & staff) but I'm still looking forward to these tools/options this fall.  If previous feature add-ons is any indication then +Cisco Meraki will be on board to quickly implement the MDM changes as well!

nice straight and to the point article but I feel like a lot of this could be applied to any tablet and/or even a standard laptop.

great resource/info on pilot programs, ipads, 1:1 in education and one of the clearer explanations of Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovation Theory that I have read.

personally I love running if walking isn't getting me somewhere fast enough but this is a cool invention that could possibly gain traction if the price is right and the public embraces it...
