Now Apple's media line is they really have no info on this program so ask TFA. Naturally, mum's the word over at TFA. So if this is such a great idea, why isn't anyone talking about it?
My read is that there's a TFA alum/tribble up the foodchain over at Apple who believes this is a great idea. (It's got lots o'problems starting with how can you be sure it goes to a high-needs classroom? What if that TFA recruit leaves? Where does the iPad go then? And, why wouldn't Apple eliminate the middle-man (TFA) and just tell people to donate their iPad to their nearest school district?)
But hey, let's ask the man himself - Steve Jobs. The rumor is that he does indeed answer some of his e-mail from customers. What if he were to get a large number of e-mails all on the same subject? It's worth a shot. (I will sweeten the e-mail to Jobs by telling him I tested a beta test LISA - an early precursor to the Macintosh. Lisa is his daughter's name. Maybe that will get his attention.)
Here's the address:
