Latest on iPad: Banned From Israel and 2 American Universities

#1
iPad, Apple’s newest gadget that has gained so much popularity lately has been reported to be banned from 2 American Universities. Though it has gained so much praises, it can’t have all the glory.

One of the universities is the Princeton University in New Jersey. They reported that iPad is giving their entire computer system a problem. The device is having a problem as it connects to a wireless network. 20 percent of the iPads on campus has been blocked because of the problems that it brings. Specifically, iPad causes DHCP client malfunctions, which basically means the tablet causes interference for other devices using the school’s wireless network. In order to prevent that interference, Princeton has been blocking the offending iPads.

On the other hand, George Washington University, in Washington, D.C has a different story. Their problem isn’t about DHCP. The university’s current authentication system isn’t supported by the iPhone or the iPad. Actually they didn’t ban the gadget, it’s just that the user can’t log on.

Aside from these universities, Israel also banned the gadget and whenever you enter their country, the gadget will be confiscated and you need to pay a daily storage fee at which point you can then collect it on your way out of the country. “If you operate equipment in a frequency band which is different from the others that operate on that frequency band, then there will be interference,” said Nati Schubert, Senior Deputy Director for CMI (Communications Ministry of Israel). “We don’t care where people buy their equipment … but without regulation, you would have chaos.”
