    Cool This is why you don't use Apple Consumer Grade Gear in Schools

    Students punished for teacher's topless photo

    Students from a US school have been suspended and face expulsion after viewing a nearly nude photo of their teacher.
    In an obviously 'completely' education related move this school got Apple gear and it was obviously used for education, just not in the topics they were expecting. For 'T&L' I'm sure the teacher managed to sync her iPhone to the classroom iPad, this helpfully included a topless photo of herself.

    The article fails to mention whether the photo was worth viewing though, A major oversight I thought

    "The problem is between the chair and the screen" - can't see how you can blame Apple for that?

    Why are the students getting in trouble for it?

    We had the principal of another Academy here the other day and as he can't connect to the corporate wifi without a username & password he appears to have connected to a random teachers iphone instead yet failed to think of the consequences.

    I thought, as an iPhone user, you had to explicitly enable tethering in the systems setting and your mobile operator had to enable the option. Certainly leads to questions with the user whose iPhone it was as that could easily eat up their 3G data plan. If it was my phone, I'd always turn it off when I don't need it.

    I'm wondering the same thing myself. Unless there is more to this than is being reported, it seems like there is very little to blame on students at this point. Of course, we don't know if any of them did anything else with the photo (such as making copies or forwarding it).

    I think Orange (for example) has it enabled by default, at least on some plans, but you do still need to turn the hotspot on manually on the iPhone.

    ....because business-grade gear prevents end-users from being blithering idiots and putting personal files on corporate hardware? I've never had to go and investigate* home-made grumble flicks on some obscure network share

    Oh wait...., yes I have. Idiots unaware of work/play boundaries can't be blamed on device manufacturers.

    Also, when did wearing a bra = topless?

    *not in a school.

    Yes, lets blame the manufacturer = what a great idea!
    I had some kids once sending pornographic disney cartoons to each other over Hotmail - I've hated it ever since and won't let anyone use it now /sarcasm

    And what's worse is you can't neg rep or block posts from a Mod either...

    Sounds like someone didn't understand how Apple stuff works - ie. you link it together and things are available from all the devices. I'd be blaming the IT dept for not educating their users...

    You can't neg rep anyone anymore, sorry you did not see the humour in my post. People blame the manufacturers for user behaviour all the time, possibly unfairly but it would have ruined my sarcastic post. I'll remember to use sarcasm tags next time

    Got to love a country where some of the worst* porn is in the world produced and yet a picture of a woman in a bra is described as "lewd"...

    *not referring to the quality of course...

    Wow such a strong response.

    @SYNACK: I have the same problem with text messages.
