Apple profiles iPads used in big business
Apple has published profiles of four large businesses that use iPads in their daily functioning. The first, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, explains how their staff has replaced older tools with the iPad. "I don't carry a calculator. I used to subscribe to all the journals: the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times. That's all disappeared. It's all on iPad."

Additionally, guests who check into Hyatt's Andaz brand hotels are greeted with iPad-wielding staff who let them swipe a credit card, check in, and receive a card key that was encoded by the iPad itself. Since the iPad is so portable, there's no need for guests to stand in line at the desk.

Also featured is RehabCare, a St. Louis-based medical rehab facility. They've eliminated a lot of paper from their process by introducing the iPad, using it to enter patient data, track records, and more.

There are two other businesses featured, and each has an accompanying overview video. It's good to see Apple pushing the iPad to the enterprise market.
