The government of Saskatchewan has started using iPads. The Premier, Brad Wall, and all of his 17 cabinet ministers have recently been issued with iPads and this week they held their first cabinet meeting with their iPads in use.
The cost of equipping the cabinet with iPads is around $23,000 – but it’s said that savings on paper and courier costs should amount to double that.
"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.
Good stuff on kicking binders to the curb, saving some taxpayer money, and embracing some hot new technology. I also like how the Premier is shown laughing at other Canadian provinces who are still waiting on Android tablet devices.
