Driving with iPad

Saw a dude in a black SUV driving with an iPad on his lap. The iPad was resting on the steering wheel so he was obviously looking at it.

I guess its probably a 3G version with AGPS support for his direction.

I find it quite dangerous without securing the iPad to something.

This was earlier this week, before the launch.

now i guess this is no different with talking on hp while driving. I dun know does he looks at it while driving? If he is using it as GPS, if so can TP stop him...unless he has the hands free stand.

nope, definitely no stand. It was resting on his lap, proped up against the steering wheels. He was looking at it while driving on the ECP.

I guess its the same as looking at the GPS while driving. However, I think in this case its dangerous. If your iPad falls off your lap, you tend to want to grab it. By doing so, you might swirl the car left or right.

Its dumb.
