Do you use digital media as a reference while

I've been curious about this for a while, when I see things like Epicurious's iPad app. Does anyone actually use these devices in an actual working kitchen, as a reference on a routine basis?*
We're a pretty nerdy household, but I have a hard time imagining chucking out the Art of French Cooking or ten years' worth of cooking magazines in favor of a more modern solution, regardless of what awesome library of recipes I could have in digital storage.
So I'm curious -- does anyone actually use any sort of computer in the kitchen to do live cooking with--i.e. iPad out on the butcher block as you make a pie crust, laptop open as you make bolognese sauce, etc? Am I missing out on something by clinging to the old paper versions? Is this an early sign of old crank-dom?
