Norway's Stranded Prime Minister Uses iPad To Govern From U.S.

Norway's Stranded Prime Minister Uses iPad To Direct Country From New York City

An enormous volcanic ash cloud has shut down air travel in Europe, canceling flights and stranding Europe-bound passengers around the world.

But thanks to the iPad, stranded Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg hasn't had any trouble.

Stoltenberg, who traveled from Oslo to the U.S. to participate in President Obama's nuclear summit, is now stuck in New York City. Stoltenberg's press secretary told CNN that the prime minister has been running his government from Apple's tablet.

A photo of Stoltenberg on the Norwegian Government's official Flickr account shows the prime minister and his iPad under the (translated) title "The prime minister is working at the airport."
