Kindergartners getting iPads 2s?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2011

Do you know many 5 year olds who have an iPad? Whatever you answered, there are soon to be more small people sporting Apple’s tablet. School officials in Maine’s Auburn Schools Committee have voted unanimously to provide all kindergartners with a brand new iPad 2 next year. They will repeat this process for each new incoming class as well.

That’s gonna be expensive, but they feel it is worth it. It will cost the school system about $200,000 next year, including Apple’s $25 discount from the tablet’s regular retail price. No wonder this school is already looking for a 5 percent budget increase.

Maine to consider cancer warning labels on cellphones

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 20th, 2009

The debate continues as to whether or not cell phones can harm us, but one state may be ready take the next step in warning consumers about the dangers. If she has her way, a Maine legislator wants to make the state the first to require cell phones to carry warnings that they can cause brain cancer, even though there is no consensus among scientists that they do.

Cell phones carry these warnings in some countries, but right now no U.S. states require them. A similar effort is underway in San Francisco, where Mayor Gavin Newsom would like his city to be the nation’s first to require such warnings. These measures seem premature, given the fact that there is no hard data to support the claims.
