Can a kid succeed in school with only a mobile device for Internet access at home?
Lorena Uribe doesn't have to think about that one:
"Absolutely not," she says.
When her old computer broke down several years ago, she and her teenage daughter found themselves in a bind for about five months: homework to do and no computer or broadband access at home.
"I would take her to the mall and have her sit in Panera so she could use the Wi-Fi on her iPad from school," Uribe says.
