South Korea’s culture minister, Yu In-chon, strode into a government briefing room Monday for what seemed to be a routine photo-op as his ministry announced a $50 million program to help develop the country’s budding electronic-books industry.

But trouble came when Mr. Yu pulled out an Apple iPad, held it up and remarked about how nicely it displays electronic books. The problem is, South Korea’s communications regulators haven’t approved the device for wireless networking in the country.
Tech-industry bloggers pounced on Mr. Yu, criticizing him for using a device that isn’t even available in South Korea yet.

Two down, 200 to go.

BTW, I hate Bing

It is posted in the pending news. I don't like having to go to links for every little news item, so I feel many people also prefer just a summary of the facts.

The story was imbeded with words that had no relevance to the story that if you passed over them, popped up a link. I hate that and when I copied the text, all those nonsense links had to be manually purged.

How's that for advertising...a nice big nanny nanny boo boo to an entire country. You'd a thought there would be more of an uproar since the iPad can't be gotten in that country...yet.
