7,000 third-generation Apple iPads to be used by Airport Restaurant operator to entertain guests
The tablet is loaded with custom software including an ap that runs in the background to keep users updated with information about their flight. Each unit also has a per-use security system that wipes info with a push of the home button. This allows users to view sensitive material like bank accounts and social networking sites. A unique central management system lets OTG send out firmware and other updates to all of its tablets quickly. The company plans on adding a virtual storefront to sell items that would useful for a plane ride such as pillows and headphones that could be picked up after checking out of the restaurant.
And there are jobs available. OTG is looking for independent developers to write apps for its customers.

Maybe I'd go and just play with the iPad, without flying or buying anything to eat.

Except that you can't even get through security without a boarding pass now.

Aw sh!t really? Used to spend hours with my friends in airports. Just hanging around, but that was like 2 or 3 years ago though.
