Long overdue,in my opinion. Apple is nothing if not a huge monopoly that wants to extend its tentacles into everything. Way to go,DOJ... Eat it,Apple!!!

i still dont see why a school would buy an ipad to use as an ereader when a kindle does the same thing for 1/3rd the money. Its not like apple is giving schools a price break of any worth. That digital media book they showed off a few months back was pretty cool, but nothing the competition cant do or one up... and definitely not worth the 300% price mark up per tablet vs a kindle.

All politics and the usual incompetence that goes along with everything these days. You would think that a publicly funded outfit like public schools would choose the more efficient e reader but no, they choose the most popular and damn near most expensive device...want to bet someone was steering this ship toward the Isle of Apple?

School spending = taxpayers money
So why not spend it on something totally unnecessary and cut back on extra ciricculum and nutrition lunch
