    Default 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."

    Perhaps the queen could share with us just how she will jailbreak that iPad2.

    Default already on welfare
    Why should she get it for free? She is extremely wealthy, with projected net worths in the billions of USD. Granted the source of her wealth is already the tax payers of the United Kingdom, she has plenty of money already that she just took from the people, so what is less than a grand gonna do to her already billions of dollars?

    1. You're using "The Sun" as a source?

    2. Where does it say (rumored or un-rumored) that she's getting it for free?

    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.
