NoPad in Israel

Israel has banned Apple’s new tablet computer, the iPad, because its wireless network is not equipped to handle the use of the machine, the Associated Press reported. The ban applies to both tourists and citizens, and the AP reported that 10 iPads have already been confiscated by customs officials who are charging the owners a daily storage payment to hold on to their devices.
