I have started this thread to publicise stories about unusual uses for iPads. *This excellent tablet can be used for the greater good, and in some surprising arenas. *Have you seen a news story about how iPads are being put to good use? I recently saw a story in a UK newspaper. *The story prompted this thread. *I will post my summary of the story, with an acknowledgement of the source, in the next post. There are iPad forums which cover different ways in which the iPad is being used. *For example there is the Special Needs iPad Forum. *However, these threads are more specialised and lay people may not be aware of the threads. *This new thread is for more general stories about new uses for iPads. Now for some rules The iPF forum rules apply. Your written post should be a summary of the story in your own words. *Do NOT. Cut and paste huge chunks of text from the story. Quote the source of the story. *No links to the story please. If you are posting an image, quote the image source. *Again no links. Stories about standard iPads and standard apps shall be put up. *Stories about jail broken equipment will not be permitted. That's it. *Let the thread, or is it presses, roll.
