A school superintendent wrote a letter to the Governor of Michigan to ask him to classified his school as a prison. Now, I guarantee you, that once you read his letter, a very short letter, you will agree.
Considering how much we spend on a prisoner vs a student, I say we go for it. Read the letter here.
Yes, you read that correctly. Apple, the company behind iPod, iPad, iArm (not a real product, yet), iPhone, etc. Has issued a doc stating that anyone wishing to give a free iPads for example, in lots of 250 or more. Must get approval from Apple. Image that?
Assume I wanted to buy every student in my old high school an iPad. That is more than 250 students. I will need to contact Apple first, even though I am paying for the devices and in noway using a discount from Apple.
Fortunately, I am a nut case and don’t support Apple by using any of its products. I found this story here:

KingSkippus writes “According to a story at CNN, Apple has begun enforcing third party promotion guidelines (PDF) that, among other things, restricts organizations from giving away iPads, using the word ‘free’ to describe any Apple products in a prominent manner, or promoting giveaways of iPod Touches in lots of less than 250 and with Apple’s explicit approval.”
