How ESPN reporter covers NASCAR with an iPad


ESPN Pit Reporter Dave Burns covers NASCAR's premiere Sprint Cup Series for the network. He's been reporting on racing for many years, and recently abandoned his personal paper-based note system for carefully selected iPad apps.

Burns says that note-taking is "highly personal," and that ESPN does not require him to use a certain system. For years, he effectively used a paper form the he devised himself. When the iPad debuted, however, Burns saw the potential.

The digital system he's created includes Note Taker HD and SimplyPDF. He also uses a FreeOneHand iPad case as it prevents overheating, unlike a full-cover case he used.

It's an interesting story which includes a sample of the notes Burns takes on race day.
