A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

I can't make this up: From England's The Register newspaper:


Study: PCs make kids dumber

Students who use computers frequently at school perform worse than their peers at maths and reading.


Yeah, but how does it affect their writings?

Comments:
The Register is a newspaper in the same sense that Slashdot is. Only slashdot...well, let's just say that the Register takes about as much care to keep it's political opinions out of it's stories as do the posters on slashdot (not the people commenting, but the people who post stories).
 
"Maths" instead of "Math" is correct in Britain. I think it is meant to imply the several branches of mathematics, calculus, arithmetic, etc.
 
If PCs make kids dumber, what do Macs do?
 
The same, but it makes them feel smarter.
 
Yep. "Maths" is the British usage. After all, it is short for MathematicS. :-)
