iBook distribution delayed

The recent Apple battery recall along with reports (and confirmations) of battery fires have lead to at least one school to delay the distribution of over 600 iBooks to its students. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Quaker Valley High School students will return to class without the laptop computers to which they've become accustomed because the batteries that power them could be dangerous. The delay will allow school officials to check the laptops to determine if they are affected by a battery recall issued by Apple, according to the report: "Quaker Valley provides laptop computers to its students as a continuation of the Pennsylvania Digital School District, which began in the 2002-03 school year, with computers given to 1,800 students from third grade through high school. After the first year, the program was scaled back to just high school students -- who use the computers for much of their course work and turn in many assignments electronically."
