Supermodel Bar Refaeli in iPad trouble in Israel

“A famous Israeli export is in trouble for her import,” The Associated Press reports.

“Supermodel Bar Refaeli was caught at Tel Aviv’s international airport this week trying to bring in her newly purchased iPad without declaring it at customs,” AP reports. “Refaeli told Israel’s Channel 10 TV that she had an iPad in a suitcase that was lost in transit. She said she didn’t declare the iPad upon entrance to Israel for a brief commercial appearance.”

AP reports, “She is now required to pay 650 shekels ($170) in taxes and fines to get it back.”

MacDailyNews Take: On the trouble scale (0-100, least to worst), this is a about 0.3. And, yes, we will take pretty much any excuse we can find to spruce the place up with a photo of Bar Refaeli.
