A recently approved contract between the Chino Valley Unified School District and Apple Computer will change the way some students take standardized tests and turn in homework.

Under the E-Backpack/Universal Locker program, high school students could use the World Wide Web to access homework or class assignments posted by teachers. Students would work on those assignments and could even turn in their homework via the Web.,1413,208%257E12588%257E1077055,00.html

5 Step Program
The experience will differ person to person, but the move from the PC to the Macintosh can be traced in five basic steps...

Try It, You'll Like It
Every two years or so, PC users follow a common ritual. The old machine has lost its luster, and no longer has the power required to do their job or make them feel happy about being in front of the computer in the first place.

So they call up the guys at their favorite mail-order company or trot off to the local PC emporium and plop down a couple grand on the same-old-same-old-only-more-so.

It doesn't have to be this way. At the beginning of each cycle we bemoan this rut, and hear a voice in the back of our heads, as if Yoda took on a job in Cupertino as director of sales and marketing. "There is another, and its name is Macintosh."

Other than that, you should select programs that are designed for OS X. Running an older Mac program in emulation mode is a hassle; you may as well be using Windows.

The 5 steps story, this was the only thing that hit me wrong. Apple did a wonderful job making sure that the transition would be painless. I run several aps in Classic mode and it is very satisfactory. Better than that, it is seamless and painless. I run:

JMP (a statistics analysis program by SAS Institute)
Geneforge (a game)
Duplicate Bridge Scoring (a very crude program for running bridge competitions)
Alpha Centauri
Bridge Baron (a bridge playing program)
