Blue Devil!?!

So it seems that Duke Univeristy has decided that for $40K in tuition, each incoming freshman should at least get a new iPod. According to Duke's press release (, the students will also be able to download audio course materials that professors provide.

What ever happened to good ol' tape recorders?

This is so reminscent of that montage in 'Real Genius' where the guy keeps walking into the classroom and every day more and more students are replaced with tape recorders, until one day, the professor himself puts a tape recorder on his desk.

Video still may have not killed the radio start, but will the iPod kill both the lecture and the tape recorder?
