Using my iPad as a tray, I carry my coffee and breakfast to the den, sit down at the computer to read news and blogs and, if I'm feeling ambitious, write a post of my own.
For the second morning in a row, I puzzled over the unusual surge in my blog traffic. I briefly made mention of it yesterday. Most of this traffic seems to be coming from google searches originating in Pakistan.
At the very moment I was pondering this mystery, I was surprised to get the answer from my NPR audio stream: Guns And Androids: Pakistan Air Force Making iPads.
And the name of this new iPad clone? You guessed it. The PACPAD 1.
Evidently, the Pakistan Air Force (Pakistan Aeronautical Complex, or "PAC") has interests that go well beyond simple air-forcing. Along with cheap iPad knock-offs, it also makes breakfast cereal.

a year's supply of PAC-Loops is on its way. Yes, they taste like crap, but there's a
prize in every box. That's how I got this Bin Laden decoder ring.
