Post Re: Ipad or Ipad Mini
I guess I just don't understand this fear everyone seems to associate with children and technology. Also the analog clock analogy has never made sense to me, no one knows how to speak latin either but no one complains about that. Why is the analog clock deemed so important?

well... lets see shall we. :lol:

your kid gets stranded in the wild without cell reception. oh no!!!... i need to bust out my tablet, oh shit... tablet gets no cell reception either. say you banged up your digital watch, you have no way of telling time. but if you had the knowledge of using a stick in the ground to tell time, that wouldn't be much of trouble. and say you find a map, but hey, never had the need to flip the page, so now a map looks like an artifact, and can't make sense out of it. and worst of it all, you landed on a beach and see a plane fly by, but you can't for the life of you figure out how to write SOS, you can punch those letters as hard as you can on the tablet but words won't appear on the sand. :lol: all hypothetical.

call me old fashion. we're humans, i just don't think we're built to be completely isolated from nature. we should utilize technology as much and to the best we can, we we also shouldn't forget that part of us which makes us human, the connection to nature.

All this talking and not once did anyone mention all the years we have spent in this forum as well as pcstats talking about god knows what when we could have been mowing the grass or planting watermelons. JD...you are still a youngster. You could be planting some of those melons.
But seriously. I get JDs point 100%. There are alot of fat lazy kids these days with only hand-eye coordination as their skillset. ie..video games.
I did my fair share of kid playing in the woods and fixing my own cars and cutting down trees and chopping firewood. I was raised on a ranch. I did all that or my Dad whooped my ass. And I thank him for it.

And I still have not got an Ipad.

Post Re: Ipad or Ipad Mini
I know, I'm young but I sound like a crusty old man :lol: I have a very pessimistic view on society as a whole.

And I think we are all old enough here to know self-control, the difference between games and reality, and have basic skills. All of us were raised with a lack of computers/cellphones/etc.

At the end of the day, the iPad Mini seems like the best choice, or a Nexus 7 if you don't mind jumping over to Android.

I like your analogy, BAM!. But likewise I wasn't arguing isolating ones kids from nature. I was advocating not isolating them from technology, which is what a lot of parents seem to want to do.

You have to carefully mix the 2 in some way. Affer all they are the future so they need to know technology. Who knows what the world is gonna be like when they are adults

Yeah I've been watching Revolution, nothing noteworthy though...

That chick has some serious mood swings and just overall is a terrible actor IMO.

to be honest, i don't blame you. i stopped watching after two episodes. the story just doesn't sell me. chick is hot tho, but her dialogues and character plot annoys me.

The eye candy doesn't make up for her terrible acting.

back in the days you just had to show some boobs.. but these days audiences are much more sophisticated. boobs don't do the trick anymore.
