ACU announced that incoming students will get an iPhone or iPod touch
to receive homework alerts, answer in-class surveys and quizzes, get directions to their professors’ offices, and check their meal and account balances . . .
Is this the beginning of new trend?
Yesterday I went to see the new movie Vantage Point. Some sort of handheld device played a big part in the plot of this movie. All I could think about as I watched was, Is that an iPhone and can you really do things like this with a handheld? If the plot of the movie is anywhere close to reality, a few alerts and quizzes in a handheld ought to be easy button useful.
