Tech such as ipads, chromebooks etc should be added but after forethought of how best to do it and proper research into security etc. The original guy wanted ipads and Pearson and tailored the requirements so it would be the obvious choice. It's important to note that they aren't killing the idea just this contract. We may find in six months they are still going to buy iPads after all, but after a properly executed contract is created.
I disagree. WRITING isn't the issue. Thinking and communicating is the issue. That's what kids need to be taught before we get hung on the forms of communication. But schools are mostly too bust teaching to tests to worry about those skillsIn the hard cover world there are only like 5 textbook publishers. And there are plenty of tools for teaching for the iPad. Teachers just don't want to use them because they require more work over just reading from a text book. Or they...
Some do. My siblings teach in districts that do it right. But I agree that isn't always the case.Heck look at LAUSD. A big reason they got so much bad press was the hacking of the security profiles. Not an Apple issue but Apple got a black eye over it. They were slapped with blame over LAUSD choosing to use a third party security system that was removable by any user. Including the kids. Oops. Because they didn't bother to spend the time to really research the issues. Had...
I have never been impressed with how IDC does their research so I question their numbers and their conclusions. They tend to make inferences that I'm not sure are valid. Like the LAUSD thing. No actual numbers about how many non iPads were bought and they skip mentioning that the real issue was not the tech so much as questions about the validity of the process. It seems that the guy that wrote the list of requirements fine tuned it to be sure iPads were picked cause he...
The latter comment is definitely on the money, all puns intended. Profit comes from either more sales or reducing costs. In this case fraud.As for the former. No, in total you won't spend more money but the banks are hoping you'll spend more via their cards. Rather than cash or using your Debit card. It's not uncommon for folks to have credit cards from banks other than their primary. So banks like Chase are pushing this because they want you to use their card, not someone...
Don't blame GarageBand or loops for folks being lazy. Lazy people make lazy music even without loops etcAnd some folks would saying using ANY app, including this one you're liking so much right now, is lazy. A real musician would have real synths etc
So they can create content for apps that doesn't require downloading an app. Be nice if they used this more. Let third party companies create loops, iMovie and Pages templates etc
They know that Cote will never let them win even if they are in the right. They are swamped in legal fees with trying to appeal the DOJ case. And the money is a pittance to them. So settle without admitting guilt and be done with it. Especially if it keeps more of this monitor crap out of their hair
Very smart move when you consider the changes in fraud insurance coming next Oct. no way is Square going to want to take the hit and subscribing merchants can't afford it. Plus if Apple Pay takes off big by then no one wants someone to decide to go to a bigger shop over the issue
Rumor has it that yes they can.,apparently Google has tossed the same keys
