Need To Govern Norway? There's An iPad For That

Need To Govern Norway? There's An iPad For That

The Prime Minister of Norway is reportedly using his iPad to keep in touch with his staff at home while he's stuck in New York.

Jens Stoltenberg is stranded in New York City because he cannot fly back to Norway due to epic volcanic ash that is spreading through the skies of Europe.

That's a problem for the guy who runs the country of Norway, so what does he do? He whips out his iPad. According to European news site V3.co.uk, the Prime Minister has been seen especially busy with his Apple tablet.

In an interview with CNN, Stoltenberg said, "There are good means of communication, I have close contacts with my office all the times, and there are a lot of activities in Norway where we try to reduce the consequences of the volcano in Norway."

"I...use an iPad, which is excellent," he also said.

In addition to being their leader, the people of Norway must admire Stoltenberg because he has an iPad. The device is still only available in the US, and there is yet no official release date for other parts of the country (though of course it's coming).

The minister will be heading back to Spain instead and completing his journey back to Norway by car. I bet he'll be enjoying some on-demand MTV iPad programming on his way home.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
