It seems that not only is Apple on the road to becoming more environmentally friendly, their products are now being used to make other organizations a touch greener as well.
The station has purchased six iPads for their news anchors to use as a replacement for the paper scripts that newscasters have relied upon for decades.
According to the station's News Director, Terry Graham, by sending the script for each show to each iPad, WFXL stands to save approximately $9,600 per year--that's more than enough cash to pay for those shiny new tablet devices, as well as 192 ream boxes of multi-purpose printer paper. Now, with that in mind, there's 5000 sheets in every ream box. With a bit more number wrangling, that would seem to work out to 960,000 sheets of paper.
Think about that how many trees that saves. Not too shabby, huh?
