    A fascinating report on Bloomberg today about how a Hungarian politician is currently drafting a new constitution for his country using the iPad. Jozsef Szajar has been posting about it on his blog, where he wrote:

    And clearly, time is very important when you’re writing a constitution, as Bloomberg says that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has set an April deadline for approval of the constitution, which appears to be a little controversial, with two opposition parties in the Hungarian Parliament boycotting the entire constitutional process due to what they say is the governing party’s failure to compromise on key issues.

    Everywhere I look I see this news! yeah, of course its interesting, but like I read somewhere, its the actual stuff that's written thats more important than the medium itself. Anyway, the iPad is great so I'm sure writing the constitution on it would be far more interesting and easier than on a computer/ laptop. I'm sure they could use some apps to make it better as well. I was wondering whether there was an app that would let you watch TV yet? Well, we can watch videos, listen to music, go online and even make phone calls using Freephoo, so why not?
