    Are iPads A Solution To Reduce Government Spending?

    Schools were quick to realize the cost savings made possible by replacing books with iPads. It appears that government agencies may also be able to see similar cost savings.
    As mentioned in an article on USAToday.com, municipalities across the country are adopting iPads as a cost-cutting measure. Hampton, VA spends $18,000 annually on printing meeting notes and agendas for their city council members. The Mayor, who had recently purchased an iPad for herself, urged the councilors to switch to iPads in place of paper documents. Even with the initial cost of purchasing iPads for each councilor, they will save nearly $14,000 in the first year.
