Since Netflix is paying for the bandwidth being used by their customers, that should mean Comcast customers see a reduction in their bills.
We're already rolling out Chromebooks for our 1-to-1 effort for 8th graders. These would be nice to replace aging machines in our libraries (book searches), and our elementary labs (mostly education web sites).
Then we plan to combine this with a VDI roll-out for those few times they do need a Windows app.
Samsung was charging more for their device than their regular Chromebooks cost. That made no sense, since it didn't include an LCD, keyboard, touchpad, and battery. I still think this one is a little high, but closer to where it should be than the Samsung device.
Sounds like this could work..just place the phased arrays on the bottom of the board, and let them push against the ground
Unless you have personnel watching these cameras 24/7, then you're not going to prevent anything. Cameras don't prevent crimes, they just help after the fact. Our school systems has installed hundreds of cameras under the guise of student safety. But only a few people view them, and not even constantly. So they're not going to prevent a school shooting, or any other crime. Perhaps it'll help catch some vandals or theft, but it seems that most shooters kill themselves anyways.
I don't think its OK, but a business has to follow the law. We can sit here and say it wrong and shouldn't be done based on what our laws in the US says. Would you feel differently if the laws in the US changed to allow the government to monitor our communication too. And don't think it couldn't...let another "terror attack" happen, and the GOP will sign away (Patriot Act) your "rights" real quick. Is RIM suppose to just shut down if that happens for "ethical" reasons?
Exactly what I'm thinking...if you're going to post this news...at least don't forget about a fairly recent post that refutes it's "first" status.
I think its too bad that they picked an area that has the financial means to do this themselves, instead of helping an area that doesn't.
Sell me the data, and let me decide what device I uses it. Why should there be an extra charge if I use a bigger screen?
The school system I work for has been using a fingerprint system in one of its cafeterias for the past couple of years. It avoids the problems with kids remembering their PINs, or using someone else's.
I work for a school system that used Gateways. After MPC took over, getting warranty parts was a hassle. And since October, we haven't received any.
Not so much a problem for standard desktops, since we can use standard parts for those, but we have labs full of their Profile 5.5. The power bricks on those die all the time, and we've only found a few sources to buy them, for $120 to $150 each.
