iPads in Education: DRM Hell

Fraser Speirs:

[This way is] fraught with hassle but is about the best that I could design. I have a Mac mini that will be the “canonical” computer for App Store purchases. Once bought on this machine, iTunes Home Sharing will make sure it appears on all the other machines.


This is a hole in Apple’s App Store infrastructure that the massive interest in iPads for education is exposing, in a way that the iPhone and iPod touch never did. One can hope that someone at Apple is looking at ways to solve it.
