Recently, the news that Israel was banning anyone bringing in an iPad made quite the ruckus. Last night, Israel finally came to its senses when they decided to revoke their original decision to ban the iPad. They are now allowing iPads from the United States to be brought into the country. Israel had banned the iPads from coming in based on a concern that the iPad could potentially disrupt local wi-fi networks. But the reasoning behind this original decision seemed fowl, especially when it became known that a single company in Israel holds a monopoly over all Apple imports. The company, named iDigital, just happens to be run by Chami Peres- the son of Israeli President Shimon Peres. Furthermore, no experts inside or out of the country would agree that the device could actually disrupt local networks by using American Wi-Fi power standards.

Israelis now looking to order an iPad for themselves, without waiting for the international release, can purchase one from Mustop.

Thanks Mr. eMachines!
