    Quite odd to see iPad used by archeologists and scientists.

    That's going to be one very dirty and scratched iPad at the end of the day!

    Off Topic: Isn't 'Bear Grills' spelt 'Bear Grylls'?
    On Topic: I definitely can see how handy it would become but Apple needs to adjust their notes app for uni and college students because when you take notes and you want to add information to another piece of information you have to hold down and find the spot you want to edit so by the time you have edited and added in the information you will have missed part of the lecture

    Well, good luck trying to scratch an iPad.

    The backside is easy to scratch, but the front side is very scratch-resistant. You can see in those pictures that the backside is already protected by a soft-rubber case, whereas the front side is almost completely exposed but didn't have so much as a scratch while it's in those hard rock environments.

    Try PenUltimate and a stylus pen. I'd recommend Targus'. Writing is much easier than typing stuffs. But if you're typing, it's not a bad idea to use Pages instead of Notes.

    Edit:

    On topic, if the iPad is so helpful, an iPad with video recording, video call, and photo taking capability would be the only electronic device they may carry along... except for other communication devices like a network hub for teams to communicate.

    I heard that iDevices and a stylus don't go well together because the screen only reacts to your skin. But still a good idea
