Are Seton Hall's incoming freshmen learning that 2+2=5?
While all of the sides to the deal refuse to disclose the terms, it is the first time that an entire class is receiving a mobile gadget. And of course, the school wants all the recipients to download the University's SHU app. The app allows a student to look at his/her schedule, tuition balance, financial aid offers and also shows a map of the campus and surrounding area. It also allows students and advisors to communicate with each other. The one strange thing is that the app is compatible with iOS, BlackBerry and Android, and none of those platforms runs the Nokia Lumia 900 that the freshmen are receiving. Either the new phones will have access to the mobile app as it expands into the Windows Phone marketplace, or else the students are learning that 2+2=5.

Hopefully for MS and Nokia, the app expands to the Windows marketplace ASAP (like before the start of the school year).

They only get the best, and chosen Nokia Lumia 900.

That is why the SHU app only supports iOS and Android - because they are the best....

OK, what bozo did this? Are these the same people that create forms with two inches of space for the state and a quarter inch for the city?
And "with iOS, BlackBerry and Android, and neither of those" - "neither" is a term applicable to two items, not three.
