Apple's iPad has another use: Syrian rebels using iPad's measuring app to direct artillery fire

Apple's iPads has finally landed in the hands of the war mongers in Syria. It has been reported that the Syrian rebels are using the iPads to test the firing angles of the mortars.

The Jaish al-Islam jihadis have been seen using the iPads to measure the angle and to adjust their mortar fire against President Bashar al-Assad's forces.

Mail Online observes that the rebels use maps and intelligence reports to locate the regime troops' positions, before employing the high-tech device to give a precision reading of the weapon's firing angle in the hope it will boost the accuracy of the missiles.
