Tablets and smartphone applications have dramatically changed a virtually endless amount of sectors throughout the world. New technology has always resulted in older products becoming obsolete which is what may be happening to clipboard manufacturers.

Think about it, why does anyone need a clipboard anymore? Almost everything is going digital. According to this article in Guardian Government Computing driving examiners aren’t keeping track of scores of their students on clipboards anymore, they’re using tablets to do so. Scores are sent instantly via the cloud at the end of the exam which “improves customer services.” No one wants to go through several pages of paper on a clipboard to find what they are looking for when a tablet can do the job better. Tablets just make things easier, and they’re fun too. There’s no question Tim Tebow, who will most likely start the season as a backup for the Jets, would rather be holding a tablet instead of a clipboard on the sidelines.
