The tablets would provide inmates with free access to educational materials and make it easier for them to file grievances. JPay would make its money by charging inmates for sending and receiving emails, and downloading music, movies and e-books. Inmates already can send mail, listen to music and read books. So this is a technological change, not a new perk.
