iPad as a glorified photo viewer

My wife and I went to the Sukho Thai foot spa at High Street Phoenix last week. They hand you an iPad to view their catalogue. Guess what form it was available as?
If you thought an interactive custom app, think again. It was just a photo slideshow. So much for the iPad coolness factor.
The 90 min spa session itself covered foot massage followed by head, neck and back massage, and was quite refreshing though.
