Just got a surprise email returning from holiday telling me that 8 out of the 10 iPod touches on loan to a school for the pilot just became victims of the good ol’ five finger discount. ‘It never rains, but it pours’ sprang to mind.

The silver lining, of course is that I get to spend the invoice on a choice of new reading devices. Good, considering that the last feedback I got was that kids were finding the iPod screens too small. Perhaps people are starting to take tablet sized screens for granted?
