Atlantic City firefighters depend on Apple iPad with Bible app for swearing in ceremony

Atlantic City firefighters depend on Apple iPad with Bible app for swearing in ceremony
Last Friday, the Atlantic City Fire Department had a big problem on its hands, so to speak. Several members were getting promoted to the position of Battalion Chiefs and Fire Captains. As is the case in the New York-New Jersey area, the media is invited and it might not be front page news, but it is news nevertheless. So when someone forgot to bring a Bible for the swearing in ceremony at City Council chambers, it looked like a bad omen for a day that should have been filled with pride and happiness.

Luckily, someone happened to have a great idea. One of the people attending the event was carrying around an Apple iPad. A Bible app was installed on the tablet, and the ceremony went on as planned. We're not sure that this would have been considered suitable for a presidential swearing-in, but it obviously met the regulations of Atlantic City.
