Reading, writing, iPhoning make news


With the headline “Reading, Writing, iPhoning,” a recent news story by Forbes.com reported on back-to-school time for the iPhone.
“When new students walk onto Abilene Christian University’s campus … they will be given T-shirts, orientation packets and either an iPhone or an iPod touch,” the article began.
It continued: “They’re not the only ones. Some, like Oklahoma ChristianUniversity and Tennessee’s Freed-Hardeman University, are pairing thedevices with MacBooks as a student technology package. Others, such asTexas-based Abilene Christian … are promoting the devices as a mobilelearning initiative.”
However, the story didn’t draw a connection that most ChristianChronicle readers would: All three of those universities are associatedwith Churches of Christ, as is Rochester College, which also gaveMacBook laptop computers to its freshman class this fall. The Chroniclereported on the trend in the April issue.
