Discovering ancient Pompeii with iPad.

via www.apple.com

An amazing article on how effective an iPad can be even in a somewhat hostile environment like and archeological dig site. Apple's features on how the iPad is revolutionizing different industries are amazing. However, I wish they would go into a bit more depth occasionally.

“It was the ability to enter so many disparate kinds of information, recording everything from architectural elements to fish scales and bones to the actual sequences of events. That my team could both type and draw on the screen, and also examine all previously entered data, made it an ideal single-device solution.”

I'd like to understand how FMTouch replaced the forms that they use and how those databases sync to provide the researchers with a unified store of information. Also, how are they getting photos onto the iPad? The camera doc? However, a fun read overall!
