Now *that's* edutainment!

Had enough of your iPod yet? Me neither. However, now you can get something new through the ubiquitous white buds: an education.

In a news release dated May 30, Apple announced that they will be making lectures, lab demos, language lessons, campus tours, and other information available on iTunes U, a dedicated area within the iTunes store. Stanford University, UC Berkeley, Duke University and MIT are among the universities involved at the outset.

Maybe I can slide a little Lester Thurow between 5 Chinese Brothers and the original Broadway cast of Avenue Q and finish learning what I should have studied 30 years ago in college!
