Officials in a Michigan district say they can afford to purchase iPads because they are spending less to maintain their buildings under a bond issue approved by voters in 2000. The district plans to spend $600,000 to provide an iPad for every high-school student beginning in the fall. Protective covers for the devices -- valued at $34,000 -- are being donated and the district also has received grant funding to improve its wireless Internet service.
