    What to spend the money on...

    I've just been told there's 1.8k left in some budget and we need to spend it immediately before the end of today.

    One of the teachers has told me to go out and buy a couple of iPads. I know for a fact that it won't get used in school and will be taken home for their children to use, even though they said it's for the students.

    Do I get the iPad or one of the other slates that has Win 7 on it, which supports USBs etc and is familiar to what's used in the school?

    Can I have your suggestions!

    OMG, that's what I need to buy but I've been told no; it has to be a slate for the 'students'.

    magically unplug one of your servers, tell them you had a power cut up there or a fuse tripped the switch, and say if you had UPS's, it would kick in and the servers would stay up...

    Well, you could buy the two or three iPads, but better might be to buy a dozen of the Android-powered tablets. Justifiable as, since they're for the children, more is better (along with cheaper in terms of replacement).
