Thanks, Kim, and good luck presenting. The first time you try using the iPad, have a backup ready just in case. After a few times, you'll get used to the tech and can rely solely on the iPad.
Thanks, Eric, for the comment. I'm glad to hear that someone is using Keynote Remote. Question -- do you need to turn auto lock off in order to keep the connection while presenting?
Thank you for the comment and happy holidays to you!

Hi, Alessandra -- Stay tuned -- I'll soon be doing a blog on exactly that.
Bob, check out Amazon, as I did this morning. There are at least 3 versions still for sale, including the most recent "3rd generation." They are most definitely still for sale.

Thanks, Jeff -- I think it's an important point of view and insight.
Hi, Suzanne -- Thanks for your question. You could certainly ask a sample of the group each time, getting to everyone by the end. That would work, and it would be less unwieldy than asking everyone. But you'd be surprised at how energizing it is for a group to have everyone involved. The group won't think it's a waste of time, because it's their opinions being solicited. So my recommendation would be to bite the bullet and ask everyone to weigh in -- with an admonition to be brief. You might, for example, do an initial check in (everyone tell us in 15 seconds or less how you are and what's up) and then brief pauses for comments, stressing that everyone gets the floor for no more than 20 seconds. That won't take long, and it will energize everyone.
