In light of the recent comment by J-Jo about the Bengals being cheap I wonder how the Texans stand compared to them in regard to using the latest technology.

In that context I stumbled upon this article (http://www.nfl.com/qs/ipadplaybook/index.jsp?module=HP11_cp) detailing teams ixnaying 5" thick playbooks in favor of I-Pads.

It never entered my mind but most teams seem to be embracing moving away from stick & paper to touch screen.

I thought it was a pretty cool story and something that had never entered my mind.

It's all about the "Cloud".

But Doc, it's military grade encryption. It would take the full brain trust of the Rooskis to crack it. That or perhaps the Somali pirates intell division. :D

As far as learning a playbook, what's the difference?

These guys have the money for many, many iPads.

But the team is picking up the tab. The devices belong to the team, not the player.
