View My Paycheck for Mobile Devices

I've spoken about the cool free web application, Viewmypaycheck.com for a few years now. Today Intuit announced that a mobile edition is available and IT IS REALLY COOL.

Don't look for it in the app marketplace, simply type

hppts://m.vmp.intuit.com

into your mobile device web browser (then bookmark it so you can go back easily). It will send you to a nice mobile app that will allow the user easy access to all the paycheck info (including sick and vacation time). Since is is browser app (and not a marketplace app, it works on all mobile devices (android, ipad, iphone).

Such a great app and FREE is always nice.

Has the iPad Changed the Business World?

I was reading an article in IBD (Investor's Business Daily) about the adoption of the iPad for business use. According to the article, In July, Apple said 47% of Global 500 companies were testing or deploying iPads.

Will it replace laptops? Probably not, but if all you need is an internet and connection, it is a pretty cool device.
