Need to write a new constitution for your country? There's an app for that.
Or at least we must assume that there is an iPad app which can be used for the task, because Hungary's new constitution is most certainly being drafted on that particular Apple product.
Bloomberg reports that Jozsef Szajer, a ruling party lawmaker in the European Parliament, wrote a blog post in which he excitedly shared that he is currently writing Hungary's new constitution on an iPad:
"Steve Jobs will surely be happy when he gets word that Hungary’s new constitution is being written on an iPad, actually my iPad,” Szajer said in a post, adding that it was the first constitution in the world to be written on the device. “The best is I don’t have to wait for minutes to turn it on, like with a normal laptop. I can open it anywhere and can take advantage of every minute. It’s a miracle!”
We suspect that Szajer would've sounded even more excited if he'd been using the soon to be released iPad 2 to draft the important document, but who are we to rain on his parade?
