    So now instead of "The dog ate my homework", we'll get, "The dog took a wiz on my homework."

    Thanks for the link - very interesting article. Just imagine, for example, going through biology class with totally interactive 3D images and audio as apposed to staring at a printed photo in a book.

    I wonder if they allow the kids to take the notebooks home. It seems as though they would have to, or alternatively allow the kids to access thier books via the web or a CD that they can take home, that is if they have a pc at home.

    If they are taking them home, seems as though there would be a potentially expensive issue of them getting dropped or infected with viruses.

    They're iBooks, so they won't have to worry so much about viruses. Oh but the P2P swapping that would be done...

    I like the idea. But, I see one risk: handwriting erosion.

    I was writing a letter recently, and my hand started hurting from all the effort.....after one paragraph.

    I do so much on Treo, or on a PC/laptop that my hands seems to have begun having lapses in muscle memory.

    No, but I've seen Picard do it.

    It's already at least a two year old idea.
