Case in point: one businesswoman has a website that can only be updated using Internet Explorer. With Ignition, she can access IE through her iPad and get the job done. She's managed her business remotely in coffee shops and while on the road. And her netbook has been gathering dust ever since.

Business managers who travel a lot can also lighten their load. Let's say you're somewhere over the Atlantic, you're going over your presentation and you realize you left some multimedia files stored on your work computer that were supposed to go in your presentation. With Ignition for iPad, you have instant access to your work computer to grab the files. No need to lug around the 5-pound laptop.

Graphic designers and web designers can also keep doing business in a pinch with a simple touch. Everything on your work Mac can be accessed through your iPad, including your entire Adobe Creative Suite. While you wouldn't necessarily want to build full websites in Dreamweaver and Fireworks on your iPad (hmm, sounds like a challenge), you can access and update your creative work wherever you are.

And couch potatoes, rejoice. Seriously, we've heard from people who use their iPad to access their upstairs computer because they didn't want to get up. And if you're lounging remotely, you can play Flash based games located on your home computer from your iPad, or bring up your entire photo library located on your home computer for the in-laws to see.

So who says the iPad has limitations? Break the barriers with LogMeIn Ignition. It's fast, easy and secure, and makes a device that's already really cool – really really cool.
