It's no ringing endorsement of the Industrial Design program at Carleton University that one of its main projects is based entirely on a misinterpretation of the thoroughly disproved Mozart Effect and on an easily Google-debunkable, 20-year-old, parent-deceiving quackfest masquerading as science--and an iPod.
But that's fine. Geof's just a kid, and Carleton's only $12,000/year [Canadian!], and Geof's even beating that cost by transferring last year from a community college. So especially if that's his kid wrapped up in that prototype, we wish him great success with all his future, non-total-bullshit-based design endeavors.
The Daily Mail Reporter who decided that a Canadian college student was enough of an expert quote to justify publishing this in the "Science & Tech" section, on the other hand, should just *#@$ing hang it up.
