I assume since their own devices aren't selling as well as they forecast, Samsung will have a surplus of DRAM manufacturing capacity, hence they're dropping prices.
Jesus that's in bad taste.
Ha, ha!  Very true. This one seems worse than most.
 Fucking hell we have a first world problem here.
I've had two in the last couple of months, previously none.
This is AppleInsider comments at it's best.   All of the reasons cited for why the schools couldn't make the iPad work are being blamed on the school.  And quite so, you can see that if the schools had better administrators, a more forward thinking view of IT, better support etc. they might have been able to make the iPad work.   But hopefully Apple don't sit there and blame the school.  If Apple wants to win the schools market, and if they believe iPad is a viable...
