First it takes my newspaper away, then my Alphasmart. I hate you, interweb.
The Moon household has two Alphasmart Pros as well. Still clicking after all these years. The only complaint I have is that they're not typewriters.
How crazy is this. I went to the NCTE conference in November - FOUR months ago - and Alphasmart had a booth surrounded by dozens of teachers ready to leverage their souls to get a classroom full of those little beauties.So much for that.
@Duffy: nothing's perfect in this world. I suggest you console yourself with a new typewriter.@Monda: RenLearn has pretty much hitched their wagon to the educational sales star. A good fit, but when the price of a full-featured Netbook drops below the price of a single-purpose AlphaSmart, then what? It's not like the schools are rolling in the cash these days anyway.Me? I'm hoarding travel typewriters for the apocalypse.
