Apple Butter Post 04 Getting Schooled Again...

Ever Go To Apple U???

Well I've just started taking some MIT Lecture Classes on Linear Algebra with Professor Gilbert Strang.  And I think this is pretty Cool. 

It's like being in a class room all over again.  I test downloaded the first two to see how far over my head it was going to be and I found I could follow it pretty easily. So I went back and got the first 5 lectures downloaded to my iPod Touch 2G.  

At about 40-50 minutes a pop, I can sneak in a lecture when the urge comes to me.
I remember trying to sell a TRS-80 presentation to a community college against IBM and Apple.  And I remember being schooled by Apple's presentation back then.  We came in second and IBM got the tail end.

Looks like Apple is Still Schooling Me.

Very Impressive.
