Morning Mobilization

What I find stupid is that a few years ago Jeppesen came out with an electronic tablet device for navigation charts and manuals. After R&D and jumping through hoops to get FAA certification it ended up costing a couple of thousand bucks. Now the iPad comes along and gets a free pass without any testing and certification. There must be some Apple fanboys at the FAA.

I have seen the Amazon kindle used by general aviation pilots. I think it would be better suited to the job because of the non glaring e-ink display and longer battery life.
