L.A. Unified School District Admits to More Security Issues with iPad Program

LAUSD iPad Education ProgramConsidering the fact that the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is the second largest school district in the nation and what some would call a “taste maker” for future programs, it appears that district-wide implementation of iPads might be dead in the water if LAUSD does not do something to cure its security ailments.

Smart Covers

I have a ‘collectors’ edition smart cover for my iPad. Okay, not really. When the smart covers were originally released there was a burnt orange color cover available and after a period of time they were discontinued. Unfortunately that really doesn’t add any value to my cover.

App Store

In a town hall meeting yesterday at Electronic Arts, Frank Gibeau the head of EA Labels is quoted as saying that “Apple gave us a truckload of money to delay the Android version” of Plants vs Zombies 2.
