I think someone on the forums does.

For those who don't know, a Saturn Outlook is basically a rebadged GMC Acadia. I wonder if saturns are still a Beeyotch to get serviced due to no dealer network (back in the day it was few and far between) :lol:

Since all they are in the past few years is rebadged Chevrolets (and Pontiacs and such), I'm sure that's not much of an issue.

I was just saying because we have an 08 Outlook XR, and the Saturn forum is like.....dead. So I was just trying to get others to join..... So if anyone knows anything join it!

And they are not to bad to service. We have an authorized dealer about 5 miles from our home. But with 83,000 miles on it, it's done alright with a few things like some belts and the radiator and some squeaks. Blah blah blah.

I presume you mean rebdaged Pontiac (singular) since the only one I can think of is the solstice?

My fiancÚ has a Saturn Ion 3 quad coupe. Most inconvenient "4-door" ever! And not to mention when I sit inside the thing, I feel as if the cheap plastic is gonna make me go blind. It's not the WORST car to look at on the outside. But once you open the door, stand back and prepare to vomit! And the seats! I've sat on more comfortable park benches. I can't wait till that cars outa the picture!

The only car I'd consider from Saturn would be the sky Redline.

I do like the outlook. One of my friends has one in black with alloy rims and leather interior. It really is a sharp looking SUV. I also like the similarly styled GMC terrain.

Eh. I don't look down on anyone who has one bc far as satires go, it's top of the line. But....naaah. Its just a Saturn. I realize it's a rebadged Acadia and buick Enclave (nicest of the 4) and chevy traverse. But after my fiancÚs Saturn, I have trouble looking past that Saturn badge.

That's why Saturn built such a nice crossover. They didn't. :lol:

Every class? Damn! You go to UCLA or something like that? :lol:

Here they are offering them for check out to students. While it'd be nice, Notebooks and pens are way less of a pain in the a$$, and I can doodle when I'm dosing off :D

Nope. Junior in high school. It's such a waste of money. I swear. Use it on something we actually can put to use. Like pen casts!

It is so freaking cool. Ok so it's like a normal white board that they have up on the wall over the chalk board. It has a special pen an the board is some special electronic thing. So after the teacher does a lesson on the board, all the talking they have done and the writing they have done on the board is ALL recorded! Then. They upload it on to school loop and we can re-watch/ listen to the lesson as many times as we want, start or end it when ever. It is so cool, but no. Stupid iPads.

The teacher even has a special notebook they can take home and use just like the board. Then they can upload that too! So far, only a handful of teachers are using Livescribe/pen cast (same thing). I really liked the teacher I has fresh year that did it. It helped me get a B+ (Algebra 1). IMO it is really would only be useful to Math and Science Classes.

When I was in high school, we had smartboards. It has a video projector and an interactive board (like a white board, but on the computer). It was pretty cool. Way better than the old light projectors with the plastic sheets and dry erase markers.

So true. I just got back from our Football game and it's Amazing. 10 year olds have iPhones! And freshmen are as big as 5 year olds...

Yep. I'm only 27, but I honestly feel old when I see what some of these kids have that's actually considered normal for their age. Like you said. 10 year olds with iPhones. When I was 10, I didn't even have my own computer yet in my bed room. Now these kids have hand held pocket computers (I think of the iPhone as more a tiny computer than phone). It doesn't help that at 27, chrissy is calling me out on all the gray hair I've already acquired lol. That's gotta be from the stress of my job. Lol. But anyway.

Don't get me wrong. I was even spoiled by my parents growing up. They bought me anything I wanted. I mean hell, they bought my first two jeeps. Lol. But I never had my own phone till college. Or even my own computer till college either. But the things kids have now days that are as common as a cheap calculator in my school days. just gotta wonder what MY kids will consider the norm once I have some and they get into school. Lol. I'm gonna need a second job if "the norm" keeps progressing technologically at such an exponential rate. Lol

Yeah, the high school I graduated from was only built a few years ago and it was jammed full of the newest technology and such. We had the smartboards and every room had a projector and a flat screen TV. There wasn't a CRT in the building. Ellensburg high school was really nice. Over the main entrance of the building there was a two story high paneled clock that glowed and changed colors when it was dark out.

When I was in high school, most of the kids had cell phones, but it was just a phone (until the iphone 1 came out). I remember having to borrow a cell phone or use the pay phone if I wanted to call my dad.
Now, I see 8 year olds (and younger) with phones (who are they gonna call/ talk to?) that would outperform the laptop I had in high school.

Well.... it's a high school in the east bay area California. The "upper echelon" of the bay area.

LOL same here. I didn't get a phone until my senior year. Everybody else had phones and the "cool" kids had smartphones and new cars.
