Default Wisconsin Schools Say "Thanks for the iPads Microsoft"

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/01/29/state.capital.will.buy.1400.ipads.in.2012/' target='_blank'>http://www.electronista.com/article....ipads.in.2012/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"School districts in Madison, Wisconsin will be getting a total of 1,400 iPads this year, all of them paid for by Microsoft, reports the Wisconsin State Journal."</em></p><p><img height="375" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1327852628.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 50px; margin-right: 50px;" width="500" /></p><p>In a round about way, Microsoft is indeed paying for the iPads, since the money for the purchase comes from a <a href="https://microsoftwik12.com/" target="_blank">settlement</a> that Wisconsin was a part of with 18 other states in an overcharging issue with Microsoft. $3.4 million was the Wisconsin part of the settlement, so they will be using about $700,000 USD of that money to purchase the iPads, which after the education discount will cost the school district in Madison roughly $479.00 USD. Ironic but I'm glad some schools are getting on board with textbooks via iPad, hopefully more and more will do the same.</p>
