ipad and censorship

I bet Apple is pushing the censorship angle to get back into the educational market in a big way. They could corner the market in digital textbooks that cost millions less to produce but you can sell for the same price. Phone books are now dead, text books will be thing of the past soon as well. If ipads are made without explicit apps and educational models have internet browsers disabled so you can't access porn in the middle of class then they probably can make huge profits selling to schools. I've heard of private schools that have have first graders using laptops, not sure if it's just a rumor but it sounds likely.
