Britain is run from an iPad

Written by Nick Farell



Which explains why it is not an empire


If you ever wondered how the UK is in such a state, it is probably because its Prime Minister David Cameron believes that is possible to run everything from his iPad.

According to the Daily Telegraph Cameron thinks it is a good idea commit serious data and public information to Apple's Walled Garden of Delights. He forgets of course that since Apple is a US company the CIA can pop around and take what ever he stores on it, but hell America has known British secrets for years.

In what appears to be a puff piece which is designed to show voters that Cameron is an “ordinary high tech sorta bloke” rather than an isolated, privileged, toff who still thinks that the UK can do without Europe, the Telegraph said that he has just had a special app made for him. The app will "allow the Prime Minister to see the latest NHS waiting-figures, crime statistics, unemployment numbers and a wide variety of other data at a glance."

The idea for the app "came from a trip by advisers to the US" we wonder why they suggested that?

For those who actually care about the news, read the last sentence of the third paragraph of the article. The rest is utterly useless trash-talking tabloid nonsense.

In short, it sounds as though he has a customised app so that he can get the latest statistics regarding unemployment, NHS waiting list figures and other information on his ipad whenever he likes.

That's it. No doom and gloom. No end of the UK prophecies. Just... the prime minister has an app that lets him view information that's relevant to him, on his ipad.

Seriously fudzilla, this sort of article is just ridiculous. I would rather support Apple than agree with how you've written a single article on them so far. Please stop this nonsense.

the bloke is a bona fide w**ker - and sporting an ipad isnt going to help his case.

The fact that he had to have a special app made to do what people using normal computers could do anyway speaks volumes about the iOS development model...
