  • The Queen of England Gets an iPad


    Stop the presses. The Queen of England has an iPad. And rumor has it, she got it for free (don't you just love it when people with a gazillion dollars get stuff for free?).

    As it turns out, Her Royal Highness was turned on to the tablet by her grandsons, Harry and William, who are said to be equally enamored of the touchscreen device - ironic, especially since the Royals aren't ones to easily lift a finger for anything. But, regardless, the 85-year old Queen was believed to be interested in the iPad as a way to help pass time on long trips.

    Perhaps the Queen wants to personally test out the tablet before deciding if Steve Jobs truly deserves to be knighted. Or, it could very well be that the aging monarch is a closet jailbreaker who wants to conquer the iPad 2 from her throne. We may never know for sure. But one thing is for certain. The Queen is down with modern technology. After all, the Queen does own a cell phone (although we can't confirm if its an iPhone or not.)

    We also know that the Queen has an iPod. Two years ago, President Barack Obama supposedly presented Queen Elizabeth II with an iPod featuring photos from her trip to the US two years earlier. Just this week, a Buckingham Palace source informed the British tabloid known as The Sun that the Queen "was particularly taken with how easy [the iPad] was to use, the large screen and how light it was. For a woman of her age, she is very switched on. It was only a matter of time before she asked someone to go and get her one."

      3. By default I'm no fan of the British Royal Family (being Irish) but you can bet she has done more days work and harder days work than you ever will.

      4. Don't you just love it when people with a gazillion dollars get organ transplants at the snap of a finger while others die on waiting lists.
      Finally another Irish guy!!

      haha!

      An totally agree with your post ESPECIALLY point no. 4!

      And whoever said she has a "gazillion" dollars need to wake up!

      The Royal family are by no means wealthy, I'd safely say Justin Bieber has a larger bank balance.

      You think she'll have to make a Genius Bar reservation to get her iPad fixed? Or will they just build an entire Apple store inside the Royal Palace?

      It's funny how you can tell which articles are written by Messany before you even open them. I'm not one who knocks what he posts.... But I do know (around 85-90% of the time) who the OP is before I dig in :-P

      The picture is funny, and I'm positive she has the pull to have it jailbroken if she wanted to

      Haha how awesome would it be if a queen jailbroke Steve would never get his nighthood if he kept patching. She would also pay people to try to hack idevices but I dream

      SRSLY!

      In other news, South Park is going to rip on the wedding this Wednesday after toasting Apple a few weeks ago.

      1) are you a staff writer?
      2) do you get to decide what Messany does?
      3) if it's a gift it's most likely free
      4) stop being a douche.
