The Egyptian government GPS ban is locking down the country’s borders from the latest technology. This ban prohibits consumers from owning and operating GPS-capable devices without a government-issued permit which includes cars, mobile phones, notebooks, and anything else that might have GPS. The government cites security concerns and joins Syria along with North Korea as the only counties restricting the use of GPS. This ban makes consumers resort to back alleys to get their iPhone 3G fix. No fun.
