UK government reportedly bans iPads from closed-door meetings

The United Kingdom has been on a tablet bent as of late, buying Apple iPads for members of parliament and designing a custom iPad app for Prime Minister David Cameron himself. However, several UK publications are reporting that the government has now banned those tablets from cabinet meetings and other sensitive conversations.

The Daily Mail writes that a security team seized a collection of iPads used in a presentation at last week’s cabinet meeting, for fear a foreign government could hack them to eavesdrop on private conversations. The Telegraph adds that some government ministers now have to put their mobile devices into soundproof lead-lined boxes before having sensitive meetings.
