Who said Apple paid off school officials?
Perhaps both. Announced next month but not available to purchase until end of this year or beginning of next.
Why? The Moto X didn't initially ship with the latest OS version tho it was available. That's evidence that they did not receive preferential treatment over the other OEM's isn't it? Add to that Google's assurance Moto would not receive software updates before anyone else and zero evidence that they've not followed thru on their word.If you read the link I offered to the ARS article it explains why Moto is able to do a better job on timely updates than say Samsung, and...

I actually quoted the first paragraph for you. You didn't notice several different devices got a mention, and that the article would concern the high costs of LA's program compared to some other districts?
Check with Benjamin Frost. He might be up for it.
The linked article wasn't about Chromebooks, they simply got a brief mention. It's safe to read it.http://www.latimes.com/local/la-me-ipads-schools-20140101-story.html#page=1
