I am not sure how it happened, but in the space of 6 months my family has become a multi-generational hotbed of iPad usage. We have his & hers (the pink one belongs to my wife, I swear), and both sets of grandparents have one each. It seems unlikely, since our parents hadn’t even heard of the things as of late last year, and I must admit I never imagined choosing a tablet over a laptop. Clearly I am no Steve Jobs.
I feel like I should be disturbed by the fact that my three-year-old, my six-year-old, and my mother all play Fruit Ninja. None of them have yet beaten my high score, mind you, and I intend to keep it that way: I keep telling them that the bombs are worth extra points. The three-year-old girl is becoming suspicious, though, so I will need a new ploy soon.
