Wednesday Verizon fired over a rather lengthy email announcing that the Motorola DROID X will be available in stores starting July 15. The new phone will cost $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate, and will require Verizon's customary 2-year ball and chain (aka contract). As previously reported, this beast will come packed with a 4.3-inch high-resolution screen (854 x 480), a 1GHz OMAP processor, 24 GB of storage (8 GB internal, 16 GB removable), and 3G Mobile Hotspot capabilities (subscription required).
"Nine months ago, we made a commitment to our customers to bring the openness of Android to the Verizon Wireless network," said John Stratton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. "Since then, we have introduced the top-selling Android phone in the marketplace today – the DROID by Motorola. DROID X takes that commitment to another level with exclusive content, faster processing speeds, and, of course, the reliability of our network."

Well, it's about to get a whole lot worse.

ZoomLee Sheldon of Bloomington's Indiana University is using an experience point (XP) system rather than the traditional grading method in two of his game design classes. Borrowing from RPGs and MMORPGs, students begin the program with an avatar at level one. To gain experience, students must complete assignments camouflaged as RPG-based tasks such as quests, crafting, and more. In real life, they're making presentations, taking quizzes, and doing all that other boring school-related work.
