A Fortune Magazine article warns that universities should hate the iPad as it will infringe on profits in the campus store. The University of California, San Diego, is going the other way. Its campus store stocks not only textbooks and collegiate gear, but runs a green grocer, a convenience store, sells computers and iPads, and does computer repair.

Students began changing their campus store habits long before the iPad came onto the market. Due to the ever-increasing costs of textbooks and the availability of auctions and textbook rentals, students have been shunning the practice of buying books on campus in favor of cheaper options.
