Having taken some time to embrace the iPhone, the Japanese are now taking to the iPad with a vengeance. And with style to boot. In a one-upmanship on Burger King's iPod musical containment booths, Cafe Ease in Tokyo's Marunouchi Building--which also houses Subway's lettuce garden--has an iPad on every table for users to get their Net fix.

iPad use is free, though how the coffee shop secures its slates isn't quite clear since they're mostly left unattended. Still, regardless of how trustworthy the clientele turns out, this is one table service that's hard to beat for now.
