  4. 4. on the other hand… “ What a crock. It’s nothing more than an advertising ploy […]. An iPod isn’t a tool and neither, frankly, is an iPhone […]. They are toys. Gadgets. Goodies. And nothing more. ACU is wasting resources for the sake of novelty. That, dear parents, is what your hard earned money is going for when you pack your kids up and send them off to Abilene. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, doesn’t it, to know your kids will be listening to their new iPod and chatting it up on their new iPhone instead of hitting the books. ”
