The working title for the next Wallace & Gromit feature is apparently "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit". ^_^ But not due until Sep 30 2005.. can anyone find any stills of the production yet?

It had to happen: the USB pendrive Swiss Army knife.

New G6 prototype spotted.

Sometimes, high hopes for technology in education are indeed met: "Since the start of the laptop program, their scores in reading, writing and math have improved enough to remove Pembroke from Maine's list of underperforming schools. Afterschool detentions have almost become obsolete. 'The laptops are integrated in the classroom all day long, and the students have become totally self-directed, independent learners.' Smith points out. 'There's a community and family atmosphere. There is peer learning going on. These were kids without confidence who wouldn't have stood up to make a presentation. Now, they're asking to stand up.'" The article does have its cautionary side, contrasting Maine's program with Michigan's, held up as somewhat half-baked, with little follow-through as to what the program should really strive to achieve, how, and paid by whom. Nonetheless, it's an encouraging sign that, given good tools, schools and students which might otherwise lag are realising much more of their potential.
