iPad Runs Country During Iceland Volcano Eruption

Doubters of the iPad will be surprised to learn that the Apple tablet device is capable of running a country — something that the Norwegian prime minister found out while in New York. Jens Stoltenberg had no way of getting home due to the Volcano Eruption in Iceland, so used the iPad to keep in touch with his government.

Most air traffic in Europe has been banned due to volcanic ash in the air, which could prove dangerous to aircraft flying over 20,000 feet. According to V3, the PM should be home by now after getting a flight to Madrid and then continuing his journey by car the rest of the way.

This is now becoming a huge worry for businesses throughout the world, as they cannot get personal or fright to and from Europe. Many companies have their stock shipped by sea, but a huge portion still travels by air — we could begin to see stock issues for a number of not only consumer electronic items but food as well.

If the volcanic ash still causes disruption for the foreseeable future, we could even see the price of our products increase as businesses make plans for alternative shipping arrangements.
