iPads Used as NFL Playbooks...

The Denver Broncos are now the third NFL team along with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Baltimore Ravens to replace their cumbersome play books with Apple's magical iPad. 
'bout time...! 

NFL playbooks can reach over 500 pages and get quite bulky. Traditionally, they’re printed on a weekly basis so that everyone in a team’s organization (players, coaches, scouts, and other staff) gets a current copy. According to the Denver Post, that means a total of 120 copies are printed each week. 
This season, the team will hand out iPads that feature the week’s game plan, scouting reports, video clips and other relevant data… A key component to the software is that it runs in the background even when a player is not reviewing the playbook, enabling the app to determine when a coach has an update to push to players, such as a new short-yardage and goal-line package… When a player isn’t connected to Wi-Fi, the app will update using the iPad’s high-speed connection on Verizon’s LTE network.
