Recently the Henrico County School District sold about 1000 iBooks for $50 each because they decided they liked Dell laptops better. The sale created a riot and several people got hurt. You can get an idea of the carnage in some videos.
What kind of idiots would sell these iBooks for $50 when they could’ve gotten many times that? (12,000 people showed up. I’m guessing they teach their kids about supply and demand?) Probably the same kind that wouldn’t prepare properly for an event like this, allowing people to get crushed and hurt when it would’ve been easy to give a little order to the horde instead of throwing open the gates carelessly. Then again, they are selling iBooks in favor of Dell laptops. What can we expect of them?
Oh well. Next year they’ll have a bunch of kids asking why their school laptop has viruses and spyware on it, but they won’t have any time to fix it because they’re too busy with their physical rehabilitation appointments.
