Japanese students lucky enough to snatch a free iPhone 3G from their school shouldn’t get too excited just yet. Your universities mean serious business. The iPhone might just be a smart ploy to get your asses in school.
A Japanese university has started to employ a special school attendance app which keeps track of whether you show your face in class or not. So not only are the iPhones to be used for studying purposes, but you can bet your academic arse that officials will be checking GPS records as well. So, you know what you do? Switch off with your friend, once every other day, give your friend your phone to bring to class. Let them deal with it.
