Someone used the 'don't enrage me, engage me' article on Friday to try and explain why learning technologies are causing our children's learning problems.

Funny How We Do It Cause We Have No Choice

Microsoft’s founder has officially admitted that the puzzling Control-Alt-Delete key combination used to access the login screen was a mistake. In his speech at Harvard University, Bill Gates revealed that it was a mistake. This process was supposed to be performed with a single button.

Gates pointed out that this wasn’t entirely Microsoft’s fault. The matter was that the designer of the IBM keyboard refused to provide the software giant with a single button.
