The other day I met with a potential client who was a supervisor at a mid-sized industrial facilitie. He was looking to have relevant documents loaded onto a set of 8 to 10 Ipads that he had yet to purchase. He was looking to hire me to load the documents onto the Ipads and to limit the functions on the Ipads so employees on the production floor could only view the company documents and not access any of the Ipads other functions. The way he described this was “neutering” the Ipad. Is there a way to do this? I have asked on another forum and so far no one knew of a way to do this. I would appreciate any help I could get. Thanks a lot.

I think that's pretty easy to do. Check out Apple's resources for deploying iPad and iOS devices in the enterprise. In particular for what you've described I think you probably just need to work with the configuration utility.

Nice answer. Bonus points for having nothing whatsoever to do with the question asked.
