    yes, possibly not the Apple products which are unsecure, but more likely the IT-staff, who is responsible for security.

    Once the students start complaining and more and more Ipads start showing up on campus-they will have to change their policy.

    Don't think so, as many of the students already have plenty of iPhones and iPod-Touches.

    It is a matter of how long they want to keep the blindfolds up......

    I believe it is not necessary to ban iPad on universities. There is no point on banning this gadget and for sure it will be useful for a lot of students also.

    It relates to the Wifi issue, which will be fixed by Apple with a firmware update.
