iPad installations at airports take some of the stress out of traveling

Totally agree. Ordering food and checking flight status I can understand. However, letting people surf the web in theory may sound great, but in reality not so good. I can just picture the bottleneck.

These days you have to arrive hours early to get through airport security. So, many people spend a lot of time waiting in the holding areas. If you have a book or magazine to read, fine. But for others it's time spent twiddling their thumbs. The iPads should be a hit - not to mention great publicity for Apple. Hopefully they gave OTG a hefty volume discount. Certainly the iPads are a great idea at airport restaurants. No waiting in line to place an order. Won't miss that one bit. If, as AIROPS reports, the iPad stations were packed, all that shows is how popular they are already. How does he know they were not relieving stress? At a minimum they were being useful, which is more than you can say about anything in holding before the iPads were installed. I don't doubt this idea will quickly catch on with other airport service providers.
