I feel like I do a lot of thinking in the shower. I was just thinking to myself this evening, gee, wouldn’t it be cool if I had been able to receive announcements over an iPhone instead of the intercom during high school.
Then I thought, this could have a dramatic impact. Imagine being able to receive school cancellations, club meeting time changes, announcements, reminders, assignments all on an iPhone or something similar. Each student would be given one, just like they used to hand out those TI-83 graphing calculators.
If money is the primary boundary, I think it’s only a matter of time an PDA-like device becomes priced like a graphing calculator.
Ironically, after getting out of the shower, I took a glance at my iGoogle page to see this Reuters headline. I thought this was extra cool because it’s happening here in Boston.
