A story written by the Washington Post poses the question, is there an expiration date for the computer mouse?  According to the Washington Post, for the first time, sales of iPads are taking over the sales of PCs in schools, according to Charles Wolf, an analyst for the investment research firm Needham & Co.  Even the growth of educational toys like Leap Frog are surpassing laptop and desktop computer sales.
