In an effort to improve communication among its sumo wrestlers, the Sumo Association is distributing iPads to its 51 sumo stables, reports “Fortune” (

The Apple tablet was chosen, according to the Jiji news agency, because many stablemasters don’t use computers and sumo wrestlers aren’t good at punching. The association has already purchased 60 iPads, which start in Japan at 48,800 yen ($570), notes “Fortune.”
