2. iPAD: On April 3, 2010, Apple launched the iPad, which was promptly banned from Israel, apparently because it was too powerful. "This device's wireless strengths violate Israeli law and will overpower other wireless devices in Israel," Communications Ministry spokesman Yechiel Shavi said at the time, as reported by The Wall Street Journal. The ban was lifted in late April, though not until a number of iPads were confiscated at Ben Gurion airport.
