Time for an iPad Ban?
was only a matter of time before someone became a victim of an
iPad assault. A story hit the wires this morning about a firefighter
in NYC beating his wife in the head with an iPad. "When she tried to
escape, he grabbed her by the hair, threw her onto a patio floor and
locked the door, according to published reports." So, we have a hostage
taken and extreme physical violence, all caused by easy access to a
personal electronics device. No doubt the domestic terrorist had large
capacity RAM modules installed. Does anyone really need more than 16
GBytes of RAM for sport computing? Only someone with an intent on doing
personal harm would need the newest large capacity 128 GByte model.
Do iPads imbue owners with a sense of superiority and invincibility
who feel powerful when in possession of one? What about iPhones, which
are easier to conceal? Why do citizens even need iPads when the Constitution
was written and shared with pen and paper? Lawmakers should immediately
introduce legislation to
ban RAM modules of more than 16 GBytes for iPads and iPhones.
Only law enforcement and the military need more.
