    Russian President Dimitry Medvedev Has An iPad

    Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg isn’t the only politician to use an iPad. Russian President (and Putin-wielded political hand puppet) Dimitry Medvedev was spotted using an iPad during a recent meeting of the State Council, the Council of the Arts and the Council for Science and Technology.

    It was a loaner, the Russian Government hasn't bought any yet.

    Fox2 Detroit is using the iPad as well. I watched a clip last night of the anchor showing a pic of a Police officer sleeping in his car. The photo was on an iPad.

    Probably easy to clone the device, but I wonder if the operating system in these foreign copies are ripped-off versions of Apple's OS?

    If they can steal our sub designs, I doubt even Jobs can prevent a chinese spy from getting the specs to whoever.
