CNET is reporting that the NFL is considering replacing bulky coach’s play books with iPads. There are few teams are thinking about the switch. This would save so much money and paper. I wonder why it has not been done already.
One of the benefits is a networked iPad. Those detailed plays could be full of animation. There would be no need to send someone down from the both to update pictures. Realtime pictures of the last play.
Dallas Cowboys head of technology Peter Walsh explains, security is a top concern. Teams must be certain that networks and the iPads are secure, and that their intellectual property is protected.
