08:55 AM ET 06.05 | The NFL is finding more and more uses for iPads. The Ravens are giving players their playbooks on Ipads this year. No more paper. One big benefit is if the Ipad playbook is lost or stolen, or if the player gets cut and disappears with it, the team can remotely erase all the information from the tablet. The Falcons used Ipads during pre-draft interviews.

They *say* they can erase remotely...That kind of technology always sounds better than it works.

Cool! I want one!

Well that will be easy for Bilacheck to hack

Right - like any of these Neanderthals are capable of comprehending the technology; I'm thinking many of these players, perhaps a majority, will need someone to help them with their Ipad - like their kid, their cousin, nephew etc.. I'm wondering who will be the first to have their play books disseminated to the public because they lost it, it got hacked, or their trusted helper gives it to the highest bidder???

You do realize that if you have European blood, you are a descendent of Cro-Magnon, right?

How about when they get excited or pissed on the sideline and throw in to the ground?

Spiking the Ipad, I could see it happening, if they Twitter from it could the teams erase their stupid comments?
