The iPad: So Good, You Can Run a Country on it

A lot of bytes and ink have been spent on whether the iPad is good for anything but games or gently ushering your computer-phobic granny into the digital age.

Proof the device is good enough for real business, Norway’s prime minister Jens Stoltenberg reportedly ran his country from an iPad while stuck at the airport in New York yesterday.

While Stoltenberg was grounded due to volcanic eruptions in Iceland, his staff thought it best to let citizens know he was still busy with state affairs, sans tie and what looks to be a fairly regular airport lounge, by updating the state Flickr account with a photo titled “The Prime Minister is Working At the Airport.”

Even though everyday Norwegians won’t be able to buy an iPad in stores for at least another month, it’s nice to see the PM is an early adopter.
