In late September, we wrote about the Saskatchewan government and how they decided to opt for iPads to help reduce paper and help the environment. Obviously spending $23,000 on iPads will not make taxpayers happy, but if you think about the long term benefits the iPads will pay for themselves. The reported savings would be from $8-9000/year.
The CBC posted an updated article with images of these iPads in action.
“This may be a small savings to taxpayers and a small achievement for the environment,” Wall said Wednesday. “But small achievements are important too, and so are small savings.
“Frankly, this technology is pretty easy to use,” Wall added. “And can be life-changing in terms of the number of binders we usually have in our lives.”
The Premier called the iPad “easy to use”, and I don’t doubt it. The simplicity of iOS has even 100 year old seniors using them.
The speech from the throne was also read off an iPad by Lieutenant Governor Gordon Barnhart on October 27th. Very cool. Pictures below:
Now, I wonder who has the best Fruit Ninja score out of these guys?
What do you think? Waste of money or a step towards saving paper?
