School system in Auburn, Maine to give all kindergarten students iPad 2

    Having been a resident of maine for the last 35 years let me point out that Maine is normally one of the last states in the nation to adopt new technology. Computers, commodore 64’s, were not brought into my area high school until 1982 (the start of my senior year).  Hell, there was not even a Best Buy in my area until about 7 years ago.  Not that we are all backwoods country hicks but we are slow to adopt.  The news article about Auburn and iPads was a reinforcement to me that the iPad is much much bigger than I anticipated, the penetration into the market of every day non technical people is becoming more evident.
