Sumo wrestlers need iPads, too!
Sumo wrestlers in Japan have a problem &mdash but I am not going to be the man to tell them.
When they try to send emails from a mobile phone or a personal computer, then can't do it very well thanks to their fat fingers, which push more than one key at a time.
The Japan Sumo Association (JSA) has purchased 51 iPads to distribute to their wrestlers, thinking that the larger keyboard on the iPads will solve the problem.
I am speculating that a new screen technology might be required: the sumi-eInk screen.
