    iPad used to govern a country

    This is awesome:

    "All he needs is an iPad and and outlet to run Norway.

    Jens Stoltenberg, the country's prime minister, was stranded Friday with thousands of other fliers at Kennedy Airport by a huge black cloud of volcanic ash that turned the skies over a large swath of Europe into a no-fly zone.

    But that didn't prevent Stoltenberg from conducting the daily business of Norwegian government on Apple's newest gizmo in an airport lounge."

    Or the Norwegian version - iRegjerer. :p

    There aren't that many people to rule in Norway. I think he might just manage it from an iPad. :D

    From what I understand the people of Norway are pretty nice people so I don't see any major unrest coming out of this.:D
