Texas University Giving Freshmen iPhones and iPod Touches
Unbelievable. Apparently, now ACUers can worship God and Steve Jobs. And what more could an incoming freshman want? Ha ha...
For those of you out of the loop, I attended Abilene Christian University, a fairly small school in west Texas that is now giving away an iPhone to every incoming freshman. While I'm sure this is built into tuition cost, I kinda think it's cool. I know the idea isn't new (Duke's been doing this with iPods) but the product is. And I think there are more educational applications with the iPhone than with an iPod. Although, I imagine there will be more distractions as well. Can you imagine everyone with an iPhone at chapel? Utter disarray.
Anyway, props to ACU for implementing what I think could be a really neat idea. I just hope they realize all the implications for the campus.
Hmmm... wonder if I can get one retroactively?
I'll have to pray about it.
