Are universities losing their influence over the tech sector? Yes, argues Greg Smith, chief information officer at George Fox University, in a provocative post on his blog. The influence stemmed from how students’ computing experience would affect their future buying habits, he says. As evidence of its decline, he points to how Apple “has not been catering to higher education with their shift to the new iPad consumer line,” and how Microsoft seems relatively unconcerned about universities as it tries to retain its business and government markets.
