Seton Hill University, a "small Catholic liberal arts university of about 2,100 students in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh," has announced that starting in Fall 2010, all full time students will receive both a MacBook and an iPad.
If this seems like a desperate ploy for publicity and students, you're probably right. Sounds like they've ripped a page from the divorced-dad-who's-run-out-of-options-to-get-his-child's-love playbook. "What's that hot thing all the kids want? An iPad. Yeah, spend the weekend with me in my condo and we'll take a ride to the Best Buy and get you one of those."
Maybe Seton Hill should have spent some of that iPad money updating their logo. The griffin looks like it was pulled out of a Hagar the Horrible strip. Now that you're making all these crazy promises to prospective students, people are actually going to be seeing that thing for a change.
