How bad is it here in South Dakota when because of Apple’s exclusive deal with AT&T, we can’t get the iPhone but the Taliban whom are in exile in Afghanistan and normally seek to ban almost all technology are singing the praises of Apple’s technological wonder.
We doubt Apple will sign this guy up for an endorsement deal, but Mullah Zaif, a former Taliban official, raved about his iPhone to Al Jazeera correspondent Hamish McDonald during a visit in Kabul.
I asked Zaif about his gadget. His response was pretty much the same as everyone who owns an iPhone.
“I’m addicted,” he said, “the internet is great on this, very fast.”
He proceeded to show myself and our film crew his favourite websites. I half expected him to log on and show us ‘Taliban Twitter’.
