Navy’s New Spy-Proof eReader Keeps The Crew Entertained Below Deck
Espionage-free tech comes preloaded with 300 books.
Living and working on a submarine isn’t always as exciting as it is portrayed in the movies. But in some ways it’s even worse than your basic above-sea-level job because the Navy doesn’t allow iPads or e-readers. There is a miniature library onboard, but some consider it a waste of the limited space that exists on the ship. To try and deal with this problem, the Navy’s General Library Program recently announced the Navy eReader Device (NeRD), an espionage-proof eReader with no internet capability, no removable storage, and no way to add or delete content.
