Unfortunately, the high priced iPad does not seem to be helping the pupils improve with their basic division (360/4 does not equal 100, and so a right angle does not have 100 degrees in it).

The device's camera does give us a rare, president's perspective on the world, however: many people get dressed up, but are unable to act naturally around you. I suppose that makes it hard for presidents to really know what's going on in the world, or how their policies are changing things, or aren't changing things, while they are in office.

Gogol's "Inspector General" remains relevant.
