iPad and Archaeology

The Apple site has a feature on the use of the iPad for fieldwork at Pompeii. Professor Steven Ellis from the University of Cincinnati commented:

Ellis, who estimates that iPad has already saved him a year of data entry, plans to increase the number of iPad devices from one to two per trench. “The recovery of invaluable information from our Pompeian excavations is now incalculably faster, wonderfully easier, unimaginably more dynamic, precisely more accurate, and robustly secure,” he says.
