Good parents want their children to have the best, and getting them some cheap, inferior crap is not getting them the best. The kids will know that their parents are cheapskates.
If I was still a kid and my parents had the nerve to get me a non-iPad for the holidays, I would be mighty pissed and disappointed in my parents. Even if I had siblings, I'd rather share an iPad than have some little piece of shit tablet all to myself that is basically useless.
Oh so true. Thanks to a link from another poster, I spent an hour on YouTube looking at babies and toddlers using an iPad. Even cats.
What I saw just freaked me out. Gonna buy the grandkids a couple more iPads, when the 3 comes out likely. Just watching how quickly even a four month old baby understands and is enthralled by the iPad, is amazing. I saw a baby trying to use touch gestures on a magazine over and over (something I'm doing myself these days!).
Kids are learning piano, math, drawing you name it they really get this device. I have a parent with Alzheimer's who can use the iPad, now thats an easy interface.
The schools should be developing for the iPad. An iPad for every home. Wow. What an old fart I was to think iPad was too expensive to entrust to children. Yes, they need to be monitored until they understand not to beat it up, but children deserve the iPad more than the rest of us.
