What Are Kids Using Wireless PDAs For?

from the whooops dept

Ok, there really wasn't all that much to comment on concerning yet another article about kids in schools being given handheld computers and set up on a wireless network. Obviously, it's nice to hear that the program is going well, and that many of the teachers and students find the benefits to be even more than they expected. My point in posting this is just to note that for all the wonderful educational benefits of the system touted in the article, the photo they include pretty clearly shows someone playing solitaire on the device.

    Product Placement Opportunity

    Too bad they weren't on the web looking at the PDA-friendly TechDirt page! It could be worse. They could have been on a casino site or even a pr0n site. I play solitaire too much and know that the person was going to lose that hand.
