Just caught up with this story in my clippings file, while sorting out resources for a conference next week.
It's from the Guardian from December 2008

EGYPT SAYS NO TO USE OF GPS ON iPHONE

Egypt has banned the import of all GPS-enabled devices, claiming it is a military-grade technology that can be used to help pinpoint government buildings or be used by terrorists.

As a result, Egyptian buyers will not be able to use GPS even though the iPhone will cost them the equivalent of £463, compared with a maximum of £149 in the UK, plus contract.

Apparently they're also not that keen on bloggers....
