Los Angeles School District iPad scheme confirms all 640,000 students will benefit

Last month we reported that Apple was to provide iPads to the Los Angeles school district. At the time, the numbers looked like only a slice of the region's 640,000 students would receive the hardware (just 31,000 of them initially). New information indicates that this is actually just the first wave, and in fact every one of the region's kids will benefit from the scheme -- as confirmed by Mark Hovatter, chief facilities executive for LAUSD. This is of course great news for those in the area, but not all that bad for Apple's bottom line, either, we're guessing.
