Microsoft Offers Ad-free “Bing for Schools” with Free Surface RT Tablets

Microsoft Launches Ad-free “Bing for Schools” to Earn Free Surface RT Tablets

The tech giant, Microsoft is a rival of Google in that it too wants to reach those gaining education through dedicated studious efforts. Especially young minds that are malleable are the target market for its latest venture. Bing is being introduced to classrooms across the United States as an ad-free search zone for students. The service carries no advertisements and there is a parental lock system and adult filter to block out all forbidden sites from any probing by children. Over 800,000 pupils are going to get access to the facility. Later on other educational institutions will be included in the drive to enlighten young minds. Google meanwhile has not done such a good job of limiting adult content for youngsters. Students can gain entry to risqué sites on YouTube by executing a few simple steps. But Bing is going to be a different deal altogether. 

The Surface RT tablets that Microsoft will lend to various schools at throwaway prices will serve as the hardware basis of these changes in security for the sake of the kids’ future. As a part of “Bing for Schools ,” students can also get these tablets free for their schools by earning rewards credits via Bing Rewards. The tablets will come in handy in the classroom. They will be used by teachers and students as well as parents. The whole game is one of earning credits. Once a milestone of 30,000 credits is reached, the school will earn the right to its share of Surface RT tablets. The program is starting from today. Apple too has its own version of school-friendly technology that is being introduced in classrooms.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
