BW: Apple in education

In his latest Byte of the Apple column for BusinessWeek Online, Alex Salkever tackles the . Despite laying off staff in its education division and losing out to HP for a $68 million contract with the state of Michigan, Apple's seen an uptick in marketshare that could continue to rise as the company rolls out more innovative products and rides the popularity of the iPod with members of the general public.

    RIPE

    Doesn't seem that the state of Michigan was RIPE enough to start using Mac OS X in the K-12 schools. Too bad

    RIPE.

    users who complain about MacNN are just RIPE to waste 10-15 years of their life as computer nerds.

    They're also just RIPE to go outside!!!

    apple in education...

    well, one area apple MUST improve in is powerschool. i know they got duped into buying powerschool, thinking it was more scalable than it was, but they've axed almost every snake-oil salesman in that division, and rumors say that powerschool 4.0 is due for a summer release with *gasp* honest-to-god SQL support, instead of the dead-horse 4D it had been using. seriously, every school administrator swoons at Blackboard like it was elvis, so there MUST be a space for a good interface, robust, cross-platform school district/higher education database package.

    great news

    http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=14497

    IT'S LIKELY that the multi-million OS experiment currently known as Longhorn will also run on Xbox 2s, posing a serious question for Intel in the future. Whither?
    Sources claim that Microsoft is shoehorning screenshots of the GUI into the public domain, only to bring out something completely different when the day is much nearer.

    Yet if Microsoft decides that Longhorn runs not only on future Xboxes but on the Power PC platform as well, there's plenty of room to speculate that the Vole could acquire Apple and dump Intel, without the antitrust forces getting too excited.

    Because Linux currently has more market share than Apple.

    The Power PC licence Microsoft has could allow it to take designs from IBM to Samsung or other big fabrication centres and play the foundry game to its heart content.

    Re: great news

    If M$ bought Apple, Linux would be the only choice for me. Everything M$ touches it ruins.

    Seriously, if this ever happened, I'd never stop throwing up.

    I doubt it will, it could have happened in the past, but if M$ buys apple, who will they look for to rip off innovation?

    It will mean the end to innovation? It'll be 1984 all over again.........
