Apple Awarded $30 Million iPad Deal From LA Unified School District [from Apple press release]
Apple today announced it received the Los Angeles School Board of Education's approval to begin a massive roll out of iPad to its students across the school district starting this fall. The $30 million commitment for iPads is the first phase of a larger roll out for the country's second-largest public school district. [...]

Apple will provide iPads that include the Pearson Common Core System of Courses delivered via a new app as part of the integrated solution. Apps such as iWork, iLife and iTunes, in addition to a range of educational third-party apps, are also included.
In addition to the obvious, this sounds like a big deal because it indicates the continued development of iWork and iLife.
