iPad as Mount Everest Journal

Mountaineer Hilaree O’Neill is getting ready to climb Mount Everest with an iPad.

The Colorado mountain climber plans to do so by following the path of famed hikers Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, the first documented climbers to make it to the top. While Hillary and Norgay had to use a pen and paper to document their 1953 expedition, O’Neill has an iPad to chronicle her trip.

National Geographic has more: “Ensconced in a protective case, an Apple iPad will give O’Neill a journaling device that also stores music, movies, and e-books. The iPad’s solid-state data storage drive makes it usable at altitudes where spinning hard disk drives (common in laptops) have been known to fail.”

Readers can follow O’Neill’s adventures in their iPads, as her writings will be chronicled in National Geographic‘s iPad app.
