Cool iPad Uses

7 surprising uses for an iPad: Some neat ideas here:

Patrons of the Chicago Cut steakhouse in the Second City are given an iPad to help them select a bottle of wine from a list of 750 vintages. The restaurant designed a custom app with a searchable list of all its wines by name, variety, price, and region. Chicago Cut says its investment of around $28,000 (for 40 iPads) has already paid dividends, reports the Associated Press. Wine sales have risen by 20 percent since the gimmick was introduced.

Sure, $28K for the hardware.  How much did the app cost them to build?
