iPad game

Romans have it good.

They even have a solution for days like today, when the market is dead and everyone is bored. State-issued laptops with computer games for you to play, guilt-free, when things get boring.

‘Each councillor can amuse himself and defeat stress during our long, hard meetings,’ said mayor Gianni Alemanno.

If only they were iPads.
