laptops-in-lectures_thumb41Midway though my ENG205 lecture yesterday, Professor Arnold gave one student (among the dozens or so using laptops) a stern look and said, “Can you please close your computer for me?”

Perplexed, the student complied as the other laptop users tried to figure out if Arnold had x-ray vision that could detect an open Facebook window, if the student’s vacant facial expression toward Edmund Spenser was a giveaway, or if that day’s Prince article was starting, rather than reporting, this trend in laptop policing.
