    I guess at least they tried, but could they not have just said 'smartwatches'?

    Yeah, the AW is selling so poorly that they've completely overlooked the other brands ;)

    I was more annoyed by the use of iWatch instead of Apple Watch, could they not have Googled it?

    Not to mention that "iPods" is redundant, as it's also a MP3 player.

    I'm more annoyed at the picture of a 15yr old Nokia.

    The future will laugh at this.

    Calculators were considered the same way in the past.

    In the future, besides bringing your brain, all devices will be available and provided.

    No, its just that government organizations (especially academic institutions) are inept and not even aware they are inept. I am speaking from US experience, but assume its the same in the UK. I've been to high school presentations for parents and walked away shaking my head at how bad they are at this stuff... and they are supposed to be educating our kids! Basic presentation skills, use of audio visuals, even the arrangement of the listeners... and of course things like this poster that looks like it was produced by a 3rd grader in 1980! Its really sad.

    A school thought it was good sentence structure to write.. "... could result in disqualification of ... your overall qualification." What does disqualification of your qualification mean?

    I think this is the keyword in your post "government".

    No more need be said. Sad indeed.

    If they did Google it, they would have used Android.

    It's - in the UK...
    Disqualification of your overall qualification, in the UK, would mean that you would not be awarded your degree, or other certificate showing successful progress in your particular path of education. Those "qualifications" will include various levels, depending on where you live, and the type of school you are attending.
    The "qualification" is usually attained through examination, or certification. Therefore, the "disqualification from your examination, and your overall qualification".
    So, if you are found to have an "iWATCH" in your possession, you fail the examination, and perhaps also lose the awarded degree or certificate (which would announce your "qualification" to any and all who need to know :D )

    God I miss those old bricks. Call quality was awesome and you could have a tank roll over them and they still worked.

    I did appreciate how rugged they were, but I was happy when smaller fliphones became available... especially the slim Motorola Razr. Even though for a while I was carrying the same model Nokia they used on the X-Files, I still didn't want to carry it in a belt holster :p

    The smaller models like the one in the poster could be carried in a front or back pant pocket, and think that's what started the epidemic of "butt-dialing."
