Dutch senators will soon stop using printed files and instead start using the Apple iPads instead. In an attempt to stop the unnecessary wastage of paper, the Dutch Senate is the first in Europe to distribute digital documents through a tablet computer, the iPad. The iPad application, especially developed for the Dutch Senate allows its users to consult and manage information, including calendars, legislative bills, parliamentary correspondence, and meeting documents. Secretary General of the Senate, Geert Jan Hamilton stated that even though the creation of the Senate iPad application and buying the iPads cost about 150,000 euros, it should save the Senate around 140,000 euros in courier and printing costs within the first year itself. After the first year, Hamilton feels that the annual cost for the upkeep and printing of documents will amount to a measly 35,000 or so.

Tablets like the iPad ideas can increase productivity for lawyers, although many have yet to embrace these new tools. The same thing occurred years ago when Lexis and Westlaw came on the scene, with many attorneys at that time slow to embrace computer-based legal research. Today, though, it's clear that most attorneys would never go back to the paper-based law library days.
Currently desktop and laptop computers are giving way to tablet computing, with this movement being led by the iPad, and the numerous applications that are being specifically designed for the legal profession or are easily adaptable to the practice of law. These devices and applications have the clear potential to have a game changing impact in the field. The days of carrying heavy trial bags and pushing dollies loaded with banker boxes are now coming to an end thanks to tablets.
