Norwegian government being run from an iPad during Icelandic ash cloud crisis

While Israel not be jumping on the iPad bandwagon just yet, other countries are quite pleased with Apple's tablet computer. And apparently, entire countries can be run from a 9-inch touchscreen.

While Israel not be jumping on the iPad bandwagon just yet, other countries are quite pleased with Apple's tablet computer. And apparently, entire countries can be run from a 9-inch touchscreen.

The iPad has proven to be quite useful while stranded in airports, especially while most of Europe deals with the plague of Icelandic volcanic ash. For example, Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg is stuck in New York until the friendly skies clear up. But as work must be done, Stoltenberg is running his country remotely - from an iPad. Maybe it is useful after all.

This isn't entirely shocking, though. One has to wonder how much the United States is run from President Obama's Blackberry.
