Army device E-3398D-1R

Also known as an iPod. Apparently the Army is issuing iPod Touches to its soldiers for many different uses. What a fantastic sign that the Military is starting to break the military-industrial complex shackles. The US military has long developed its own devices at a high cost to taxpayers. Perhaps now they'll start looking to use off-the-shelf products that are proven technology, and require no R&D cost. I won't hold my breath for this to be a harbinger of massive changes, but it (like the new defense budget) is a good sign.
