    God, I hate no-laptop rules.
    Seeing laptops as the reason for the lack of attention in colleges is a fallacy.
    Laptops by the majority of students are used to enhance the 'recording' of the lesson; it's a fact that you, if trained, write down more words using a keyboard than using your hands.

    The Analytical Engine has no pretensions whatever to originate anything. It can do whatever we know how to order it to perform. It can follow analysis; but it has no power of anticipating any analytical relations or truths."
