Attending a talk by uni president on Friday about "the future of learning." Thinking how best to ask an Apple DRM question in light of his plans to make us an "iPad campus."
Ask him if he's ever studied for an exam or done serious course work on an iPad. I have an iPad and I just don't think it would be as useful for that kind of work as a laptop. - John Dupuis
Is there an accessibility issue that needs to be raised? - Hedgehog
Possibly, but what I hear is that iOS is pretty friendly to the blind. I wouldn't have guessed either, but I keep hearing about blind folks who love them some iPhone. I would worry more about censorship; there's been some squirrelly stuff happening in the App Store and some of the ebook vendors in the iOSverse. - RepoRat
That is a great way to phrase the question, Steve. Re: Accessibility, iOS is pretty much the gold standard for mobile accessibility...if there is a way to make the OS better for a given issue (hearing, voice, visual, mobility) they have something baked in to do it. - Jason Griffey
Steve may have just nailed it. He hasn't actually announced any concrete plans with Apple (we're just getting word from my assoc dean), so I don't know how much he'll talk about it this week. I'll be surprised if it doesn't come up. - Jason P
