30, 000 iBooks for Maine DOE!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is the wrong forum...

While this isn't entirely a done deal, being that it's my home turf I'm very pleased.

Kind of think this is the logical (and legal) counterpoint to the proposed Microsoft state settlement... Apple did it the right way and won out on the value of their bid, but then we don't have any Microsoft/Dell subsidiaries in the state (yet).

I can't wait until the deal ends and the market will be awash in cheap iBooks. Yummy

I imagine that with an investment of that magnitude, those schools will be using the iBooks far longer than any of us would wait to get one. By the time they are done with the iBooks, none of us would likely even consider getting one except as an e-mail checking type machine.

I agree. Isn't that normally schools do with their computers?

Geez...News today said Henrico County kids (many) were caught using their laptops to download porn. :eek:

Watch how this mud sticks to Apple...

Yeah, I was when I was in 7th grade, but not many kids are.

Of course I was. When I registered here I was still in 7th grade. By judging from my earlier posts at AI you could tell how responsible and mature I was, right?

You mean you're responsible and mature now?

I'd say more, but some foolish person gave you moderation powers.

(Just kidding if you don't get it. I know that sometimes it takes high school kids a while to pick up on humor. )

LOL, yeah I got it.

When it comes to AI I guess I really haven't matured much over the past almost 2 years. Oh well.
