Gamoid (656769) writes "This past school year, the Coachella Valley Unified School District gave out 20,000 iPads to every single student. The good news is that kids love them, and only 6 of them got stolen or went missing. The bad news is, these iPads are sucking so much bandwidth that it's keeping neighboring school districts from getting online. Here's why the CVUSD is considering becoming its own ISP."

Copy that 2 (2700183) writes "Want to start a software hardware manufacturer? Look at how Toyota and Volkswagen do it.

People buy premium products not just because they utilize better technology, but also because they're fashion statements. That strategy, executed well, is why companies such as Fiat, Renault, Chrysler, GM, Peugeot and others can't compete."

We're in one of those periods in tech between revolutions. Everybody agrees the next revolution will be some kind of world where previously dumb devices get "smart" and connected, but nobody knows exactly how the plumbing will work or who will come up with the killer use case that will actually get people to buy whatever they need to buy. But we're far from done with the changes the mobile revolution has wrought, even though it's seven years old and running."

Copy that 2 (2700183) writes "The kneejerk IT admin practice of turning things off because you can is one of the reasons BlackBerry isn't a major handset maker any more. Yes, BlackBerry handsets fell behind the iOS experience, but BES admins who turned off the camera and BBM messaging and the browser made them look even further behind."
