Out with the tablet, stylus at the ready!

Professor June Entman at the University of Memphis has banned laptops from her class. Bloody right say I. This is not the same as the nutbars in Lakehead University who banned wifi, if people want to communicate in class they can just pass notes like we did, not IM and whatnot. Plus the little swine are probably streaming it for those with hangovers who want to catch it later.

The guy who's all "well I don't have good class notes" just wants to run Naturally Speaking to transcribe them. Boo hoo - it's not enough to transcribe, you have to interpret and extend them which you're more likely to do if you're involved in the act.
