What about when the Gas meter guy comes round. These people used to have hand held "Psion" like devices - now they just use a Tablet -- so there ARE some valid business applications for tablets.
Gas meter guys still come around? Our gas and electric services are directly connected by computer, so they can read the meters from the central office and also tell if an outage occurs, etc. Oh, the wonders of electronics.......
That's fine - however sometimes a "Human" will come round to verify readings etc. Also in some places you have various suppliers and the competition prevents prices from rising too rapidly -- you can SWITCH suppliers quite easily and people often save a lot of money by doing this - someone will come round to read the meter for the new company you've switched to. - Luckily they don't all connect to the same Computer !!!
Here's how it works in the UK - I've been on Contract in Manchester UK -- and coming from a country with relatively cheap and stable Energy prices I nearly DIED when I saw what UK consumers are having to pay --the average monthly Energy Bill would pay for my MORTGAGE back home !!! . By switching two times I've knocked a LOT off my bill.
