Hungary First to Write a Constitution on IPad, Lawmaker Says

March 4 (Bloomberg) -- Hungary’s new constitution is being drafted on Apple Inc.’s iPad, Jozsef Szajer, a ruling party lawmaker in the European Parliament, said in a blog post.

“Steve Jobs will surely be happy when he gets word that Hungary’s new constitution is being written on an iPad, actually my iPad,” Szajer said in a post, adding that it was the first constitution in the world to be written on the device. “The best is I don’t have to wait for minutes to turn it on, like with a normal laptop. I can open it anywhere and can take advantage of every minute. It’s a miracle!”

Szajer wrote the post on March 1, the day before Jobs, Apple’s chief executive officer, unveiled the iPad 2, which is thinner than its predecessor and features a faster chip as well as front and rear cameras.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has set an April deadline to approve the constitution. Two of the three opposition parties in Parliament are boycotting the constitutional process, citing ruling party lawmakers’ unwillingness to compromise on issues.

Orban’s Fidesz party and its junior coalition partners, the Christian Democrats, have a two-thirds parliamentary majority, enough to approve the constitution without opposition support.
