    Where the federal budget really goes towards...

    Everyone who works for the Department of the Interior just received an iPad for free.... for "work purposes".

    Always reassuring to know we have some smart business people running this country.

    They aren't replacing laptops or desktops in any businesses that I know of. They are just an extra tool.

    Nope, just as an added "perk". They were below the budget for the year, so instead of spending on something that could have actually been useful to what they are supposed to be doing, they get everyone an iPad to keep their budget where it is at for the next year, when they prove that they dont even need the full budget.

    here a big issue I find with government budgets and budgets in general. Most division will spend surpluses like this because if they have a surplus to give back they will get less of a budget for the next year. I get the thinking but that system just doesn't really breed the habit of coming in under budget. Seems like this ipad purchase is a product of this.

    The Department of Interior plans to purchase and distribute Apple iPads to see how the devices can improve worker productivity,” Elizabeth Montalbano reports for InformationWeek.

    “The move is part of a larger acquisition of Apple hardware products the department plans to make and mirrors similar moves by businesses to experiment with giving employees iPads and similar tablet devices to see how it affects job performance,” Montalbano reports. “Interior is seeking to acquire the tablet devices, which will be “used in personal productivity and visual media” within the department, as part of a two-year, firm fixed price indefinite-delivery contract, according to a public request for proposals posted on FedConnect. The contract period will begin April 1. Other products Interior seeks to buy in the acquisition include MacBook Pro and Air notebooks, and MacPro, iMac, and MacMini desktops.”



    So they are swtiching over to Apple... what's the problem. Most of the DELL computers are garbage and out dated ( in other words they spend more on tech support then it would cost to get new stuff). More conservative feigned outrage about 1/2 a story strikes again.
