Head of NSA Says iPad “Wonderful” During Congressional Hearings

It’s part of the Congressional record: the head of the NSA says the iPad is “wonderful.”

During hearings to determine whether he will take charge of U.S. Cyber Command, the head of the National Security Agency, Lieutenant General Keith Alexander, said:

“I am a technologist. I love computers. I have a new iPad,” Alexander told the committee of Senators. A few minutes later, Democratic Senator Mark Udall of Colorado couldn’t help but bring it up again. From the Congressional Quarterly transcript:
Udall: I’m tempted to get a critical review of the iPad, but perhaps we can do that–
Alexander: Wonderful.
Udall: Wonderful. I will put that on — for the record.
