China bans iPads, MacBooks from government use

China’s government excluded Apple Inc. iPads and MacBook laptops from the list of products that can be bought with public money because of security concerns, according to government officials familiar with the matter.

Windows 8 was already banned from Chinese government computers.

I can’t really blame the Chinese government. American companies have cooperated very closely with the US intelligence industry, so it was only a matter of time before the Chinese government started doing to American companies what the American government did to Chinese companies.

The several billion dollars question formulated in one word: iPhone?
