A FreeCell edition for me, please ;)

But all in all, this comic maps experiences in the lecture I've been in.

Now if only we could get Solitaire on the iPhone or iPod Touch without a jailbreak, all those Oklahoma Christian College students would be able to be productive!

Pardon my ignorance, but why that college in particular? Did I miss a news story somewhere? ;)

It was on Engadget over the weekend, they are rolling out iPhones, iPod Touches, and MacBooks to new students this year. Where was this trend when I was in college?

It seems that, in response to Microsoft buying the French Education system, Apple have bought OCC. Seeing as about 60% of the content on http://www.oc.edu/ is dedicated to apple ;) .

Well, the iPhone doesn't do Solitaire without jailbreak, and Linux PDAs' batteries don't last long enough to sit through one lecture (2hrs).

So yeah, Windows it is.

Well my Palm Centro runs solitaire and yahtzee just fine, thank you! I don't need no windows for that. And I also check my email, watch youtube videos (and not the mobile ones, either) with kinoma, listen to internet radio, and surf the web, etc. I also use SSH and VNC.

But for me yahtzee is number one (it's actually called yahdice on the palm).

I think you can also make phone calls...

It's the only application I use on my PDA ;)

And for some reason, you won't get bored after playing it for years.

Any Windows Mobile PDA/phone?

My father uses his PDA mainly as GPS/navigation system but I see him playing Solitare on it all the time. And he is lecturer at a university ;)
