Quoting Charlie's Lovely Mommy:" I think the part that feel insane to me is that it's 'THEIR" ipad. Everyone in the house has one? Why??? ... [snip!] ... apple products. I dunno, it just feels silly to me when there are starving, homeless children, women, and men in the world. "
And yet this is ANOTHER assumption...
I live with my brother, 3 adults, my DS, 2 nephews, and my niece. The adults have their computers and the children (except the baby) have iPads. And that is only because if a 7 year old and two 5 y/o's had to share 1 iPad, they would always fight. Plus, if we go somewhere, it's not like they can all share it during the drive, they aren't entertained with the same things.
I rather him have an iPad, with a fantastic case, than my phone.
