The highest ranking iPad in the military

Each day, the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, uses an iPad  to read his classified intelligence.  In an exclusive interview, Dempsey talks Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr about his embracing of handheld devices and how he sees the military using them in the future.

Officially, the iPad cannot be logged into the military internet system, known as SIPRnet.  But as a military spokesman told CNN, they are used offline.   This year, there was an initiative to use tablets as a replacement to the standard, bulky briefing books prepared each day for leadership to read.

"The devices have been physically altered and are only being used in a standalone mode. Using these tablets has saved the community countless man hours and costs in reproducing and printing thousands of pages of documents," a military spokeswoman Lt. Col. April Cunningham said. "The devices have been locked down to minimize the risk of exposure of classified information."

If you spend any time with troops, you see that the devices are in use, albeit not always officially.
