r0et has SUCH a love/hate relationship w/ Apple. I'm not much in the know
about it, but I do know Apple's reputation for putting computers in
schools. Old bits, I reckon, but I don't think I saw this here.

"In June, Apple canceled the contracts with 44 outside companies who
specialized in dealing with schools. In one fell swoop, thousands of
man-years of education sales experience got tossed away. Guess what?
Education sales by Apple are in the tank. So Steve Jobs hired a VP and gave
her a nice office. She is sending out nice coupons for $100 off to schools.
That was such a stupid decision that surely business schools will be using
Apple as a case study for the next hundred years."
"I'll buy my next new computer when I can buy it from a company which
doesn't treat me as if I'm the enemy."
