The iPad is having a hard time in more places than just Israel. The Wall Street Journal reports that several of the largest universities in the country have banned this magical techno-toy from their campuses. George Washington University, Princeton University, and Cornell University have all restricted the iPad on their campuses.

Security issues are cited as the main cause for concern. Cornell complains that the device has connectivity problems and may cause bandwidth overload. George Washington actually has a blanket ban on all wireless Apple mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch). Will more universities follow? Or will the rest of the pack embrace the iPad?
