The Canberra Times has the woeful news that the ACT Cabinet has been issued with ipads to read their cabinet papers on.
But not just any ipads. No, they’ve been specially crippled!
The iPads have had all of their capabilities, except the e-reader feature, disabled, making them impossible to hack and preventing bored frontbenchers from surfing the web while their colleagues address the room.
And no-one in this process had the nous to suggest a dedicated e-reader might be a better option?
Remember, we let these plonkers make our laws.
