One of the main trends driven by Apple’s iPad has been associated with people starting to use the tablet more and more to read their favorite previously paper-made products.

Prestigious, Yale University, has certainly taken note of that. The private Ivy League university has given iPads to all its medical students. As Yale’s Daily News describes it – “Yale School of Medicine students’ backpacks just got a whole lot lighter.”
