In giving testimony at a Congressional hearing as to whether he will lead the U.S. Cyber Command, Lieutenant General Keith B. Alexander, current Director of the NSA, mentioned that he owned an iPad. Is that relevant to his his future role of defending America from cyber terrorists? Nope. But how cool is it that the freakin' Director of the NSA loves his iPad so much he brings it up at a Congressional hearing, unprompted? Pretty damn cool.

As a matter of fact, when the Lieutenant General brought up that he had an iPad, national security took a slight sideline when a congressman returned to the subject of the iPad moments later. According to the actual Congressional Record:

Congressman: I'm tempted to get a critical review of the iPad, but perhaps we can do that--

Director of the NSA: [It's] Wonderful.

Congressman: "Wonderful." I will put that on -- for the record.



So there you go folks: not only is the iPad "magical" and "revolutionary," it's also now officially a "wonderful" device, too.
