Wind Turbine Technicians Use iPad to Keep Blades Spinning

Now iPad makes their job a lot easier. Before iPad, technicians needed over a thousand pages of binders, manuals, and electrical plans to help them perform repairs. All these documents are now stored on iPad, which makes accessing information much simpler.
