Chromebooks may be a better choice for some grades and/or school districts. There's not a lot of head-to-head comparisons I can find but this is one of them.http://hechingerreport.org/ipads-chromebooks-better-schools/"Hillsborough took a different approach. During the 2012–2013 school year, the district executed a comparative pilot, giving iPads to 200 kids and Chromebook laptops to an almost equal number. As other schools rushed into programs they would later scrap,...
There's patents that claim you can.https://www.google.com/patents/WO2014165472A1?cl=en&dq=%22light+field%22+inassignee:Google&hl=en&sa=X&ei=5fUvVcW5CbX9sASjuYHACQ&ved=0CF0Q6AEwCQhttps://www.google.com/patents/US20140125810?dq=refocusing+light+field+%22light+field%22+inassignee:Google&hl=en&sa=X&ei=rcAvVauDMKixsATH4YHQAQ&ved=0CCAQ6AEwAA
"Someone" is trolling me pretty hard today. At least the third attempt in the last several hours but I don't plan to play along so no need to continue diverting thread discussions with egregious trolling. http://arstechnica.com/staff/2011/09/announcing-increased-moderation-of-trolls-in-discussion-threads/
No, they have to approach Apple because they're the party to the contract and not Pearson. Apple's contract with the LASD was a bundled education deal and not just for iPads. It will be up to Apple to recover from Pearson.
IIRC it was a bundled deal, Apple working with Pearson to offer a package that included both an iPad and curriculum for a set price. There wasn't a separate Pearson contract with the district as far as I can tell from reading up on it. That would have been between Apple and Pearson, meaning Apple is the one they have to look to if any funds are to be recovered due to unsatisfactory class software.
Gosh. . . Dumping iPads entirely?
There's probably very few here that remember some EU investigations of Apple practices in Europe that are apparently still going on. The iTunes one was closed but terms that Apple requires of telcos that want to sell iPhones is still being looked into for possible unfair competition charges AFAIK. Another is Apple's music business and possible unfair agreements with content providers. A couple years back it was books and a settlement with the EU, unlike their choice to...
Surprisingly the EU's main objection with Google Search is Google Shopping results. The way other search results are otherwise displayed isn't an issue apparently. I can't really tell what the Android objections might be since the largest Android licensee is pre-loading competitive products from Microsoft in addition to Google products. http://techcrunch.com/2015/04/15/google-shopping-so-android-probe/
AAAND it will probably come down tomorrow with the EU claiming Google has an unfair advantage and filing an official antitrust complaint. . Microsoft is hosting an after-party to celebrate the announcement.
He could have been a resurrected previously banned user which would be my guess. I didn't see anything he posted today that was ban-worthy either.
