Los Angeles' grand dreams of putting iPads in schools came into question a month ago, and they've now come to a screeching halt.

Costco has a rough history with Apple products; the big-box chain sold Apple goods for a while, but pulled them in a huff after it was denied a chance to sell the original iPad.
