Taliban man loves his iPhone

Fundy fanboi

Remote control for virtualized desktops

The Taliban's former ambassador to Pakistan has been outed as a fanboy for the iPhone.

Despite banning most forms of new technology when in power it seems even the Taliban have bowed to the force of Apple's marketing.

Mullah Zaif told al-Jazeera's man in Kabul Hamish Macdonald he was addicted to the handset and internet access was really fast.

Macdonald said: "He proceeded to show myself and our film crew his favourite websites. I half expected him to log on and show us 'Taliban Twitter'."

The CIA reckons there are about 600,000 internet users out of a total population of just under 33 million.

Hat tip to Gawker for alerting us to this.

Just last week, a Nato bigwig said he'd seen Afghans happily chattering away on iPhones, and that this was clearly a sign of progress for the long war torn country.®
