In San Francisco this morning to cover the unveiling of Apple’s new iPad, KTLA reporter Rich DeMuro had to think fast when his crew encountered techincial difficulties with its satellite truck.  So he reached for his iPad.

As FishbowlLA reports, DeMuro reported live throughout KTLA’s morning show using his iPad 2 and Skype.

“I could get used to the whole iPad live shot thing,” DeMuro tweeted.  “It’s a pretty amazing use of technology.”

DeMuro’s use of an iPad became part of the story on KTLA.

“This is how amazing this device is,” DeMuro told viewers.  “We’re actually going live via Skype off of an iPad 2.”
