Who thinks this shit up? Will all the educational material deny evolution too? Maybe it'll have a little stock ticker as well.
News Corporation is getting into the fondleslab business via its educational arm, Amplify, with a cheap Android slab aimed at schools. "We want to transform the way teachers teach and students learn," said Amplify CEO Joel Klein in a statement. "Technology has revolutionized the world, but not the classroom. Our hope is that …
This bothers me the most. Fox is not a news outlet, it is the media wing of the republican army. Msnbc is no better, they're virtually all biased to one extreme or another.
Kids need to be given facts and taught and encouraged to draw their own conclusions. BS propaganda from either end of the political spectrum has no place in education outside of a study of Germany in the '40's.
"How much extra do you have to pay to remove the automated phone tap built into the gizmo...you know, so that News Corp reporters have access in case you become newsworthy?"

The Boy Murdoch was never charged with anything. His reputation status remains "Teflon".
I thought I'd just include a shot of Jimbo's dad as well.
That might constitute unlocking your phone which is practically terrorism!!
No doubt it will soon be cheaper, sponsored by ads and games from such outstanding organisations as the NRA. I can just imagine the 1st person shooter where you single handedly take on an entire fictional islamic army commanded by ohhhbammah then use bon jovi's sub to capture the enigma machine thereby winning the Korean war. All part of next weeks test.
I can't see the otherlot being much better, it would probably be some hypermiling your prius simulator where you save bunnies for every mpg you get over a f150.
As in the cartoon Gulliver's Travels, with that Lilliputian who murmured
"It'll nhevurh wwwerkkk, nhevhuuurrrr"
Fb will let people build their news and edu-feeds and the kids will just use tablets subsided by mommy and daddy, another party, or some corporations that want to name the high school after their company name, supplying tablets freely or at half price, for the extra benefit of gaining access to student grades.
Not a new model. I suspect it is done in Korea, where many big corps' names are on high schools and/or vocational schools they own or fund.
Amplify looks expensive, there is a $99 yearly subscription fee ontop of the $299 as well as requiring 1000 unit purchase to get the $299 pricing and 2 year committment on the subscription.
