The University of Cincinnati's excavations at Pompeii ('PARP:PS' - directed by Steven Ellis) have been featured on the Apple website - one of the most visited websites on the planet!  Apple caught on that PARP:PS were using iPads to revolutionize their field-work and so sent out a team to document this use of cuting-edge technology in archaeology.  One of the more public results has been the story on their website, which has led to much discussion and excitement in the archaeological community about the use of tablet computers to document the past.
