North Koreans can now listen to music, read e-books and watch videos on the second PDA to be available in local shops, assuming they can afford the $140 price tag. Nuclear bombs, intercontinental missiles and fusion reactors: it seems there's no limit to North Korean ingenuity, and now the country even has its own Personal …
20th Century arrives north of border
lucky bastards - I spent most of my IT career helping people use computers to emulate 19thC office technology.

Is it true
That the North Korean government is getting advice from Steve Jobs on how to be a real dictator?
Time to send Team America
Your breaking my balls Hans....
Using the device for any purpose which could be linked to subverting the will of The Good and Godly Kim Jong Il will result in the battery overheating and exploding.
