    Good find!

    So far it's a good read as well.

    Thanks.

    Just goes to show how the media and the communication of news is radically changing with these new technologies.

    Sounds great. Only concern would be privacy, over how much the school can track your comings and goings with the built-in GPS and other apps.

    There was an uproar recently over a school that gave students Macbooks, and then activated the webcam on the Macbook remotely without the students' knowledge, in their homes. The school just settled a lawsuit on that.

    Don't want to look at a gift horse in the mouth, but there are privacy concerns to be addressed.

    I prefer my own private Android phone line for that reason. Only I can see my calls, data usage, and location information.
