Remember those free ipods Duke gave out to the class of 2008 (this year's freshman)? Looks like their utility is not enough to continue the experiment with the class of 2009. Sorry guys.
My favorite part of the story:
Duke takes targeted approach with iPod project
RALEIGH, North Carolina (AP) -- An iPod in every new student's hand?
Not this fall at Duke.
The private university in Durham has decided not to reprise last year's experimental mass handout to all incoming freshman of the pricey, hard-disk portable digital players. [cnn.com] [link2]
I have my opinons.... what do you think? Exhibit A B C D E
Some students questioned the need for the giveaway, given many students already owned iPods or similar devices, with some saying the money would be better spent on financial aid or campus security.
