NSMen to be issued iPads...

Postby nakatago » Tue, 28 Jun 2011 12:46 am

...people quarrel over their politics and their support or hatred of Singapore but the consensus is it's a waste of money.

Somebody pointed out why not just ask Creative, a Singaporean consumer electronics company that produces tablets (among other things), to create one to spec.

They'd be better off issuing maxipads than ipads as most them are a bunch of tarts

i guess the rational for ipads and laptops in army is they wanna embrace the social media fever now. who knows, soldiers next time might use twitter during missions where they can report sitrep, location and all. commanders can tweet their instructions back to soldiers.

Actually, that's part of the purpose of them being issued. They already have the software operational from what I gather.
