This is so sad. I imagined a soldier killing people while listening to his iPod. What if he/she runs out of memory, the app closes, the iPod reboots, bang!...

We're getting off subject gentlemen...
Its great to see that there is another use for our devices... i'm sure its only used for practicing, as stated before it would be impractical for combat. You can't charge it, there will be water damage, and don't our guys wear gloves... We all know it doesn't work using gloves.lol

It's not only Not Cool it's pretty much useless!
If you need a computer to help you take down a target with your rifle, you don't really know what the heck your doing. In real life that gadget is more of a liability than a plus, but hey how do you take a $300 item jazz it up with a metal case and add $10 worth of basic mathematical software and then sell it back for a few thousand? Tah Da Now that's why it's cool.

does this use the accelerometer at all? otherwise it seems kind of silly. but it would be cool if you could use it to level and lock your target or something along those lines. Im not to familiar with ballistics applications and there purposes. But would it need to be mounted to the gun like that?17" MacBook Pro

This is completely impractical in the field.
Last time I checked.....stealth and light discipline were part of the snipers role. This would contradict both. I'm sure the adversary would have a hard time seeing your with your face all lit up from the screen.........;-)
Something to show your friends at the range....yes.
Something to be taken seriously......no.
