I find it infuriating that no sooner have the seniors staff at a school thought 'let's get tablet computers' the word 'iPad' instantly springs to mind. iPads are a great way to sell children into closed-platform computing, a system where everything you spend and everything you buy and everything you look goes to, comes from or is approved by the same trillion-dollar company. At the very least, they should be looking at cheaper tablets like (and I don't mean to sell) the Samsung Galaxy tab 2. Going by a quick Amazon search, they're at least £100 cheaper per unit and they run the Android software system, which is significantly less sell-out-to-a-huge-company minded.
