  1. I really like how you phrased the capabilities and
    features of the iPad; I think that is the best description I’ve heard. TripIt
    is a wonderful; I love having my private assistant at a fraction of the cost. With
    all my frequent business travel for Dish, FlightTrack Pro has really saved me a
    few times. A couple I enjoy are Yelp, as my personal after hour city guide, and
    Dish Remote Access as a consistent means of getting live TV on my iPad. This is
    especially important during those long waits in the airport, which would
    otherwise be tedious. Fantastic review, thank you!
