Time for an iPad Ban?

Time for an Assault iPad Ban - RF CafeIt 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.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
