South Koreaâ€™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 countryâ€™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 Koreaâ€™s communications regulators havenâ€™t approved the device for wireless networking in the country.
Tech-industry bloggers pounced on Mr. Yu, criticizing him for using a device that isnâ€™t even available in South Korea yet.
Two down, 200 to go.
