Why Every Child in America Needs an iPad

Our table was right next to a larger party of four adults and two young children — both girls under the age of 7 years old or so. Each of the girls had her own iPad, and each iPad had some high-end noise-cancellation headphones plugged in. One girl was engrossed in a children’s movie, and the other was enjoying a series of apps designed for kids. So of course I whipped out MY iPad and blogged about it. Granted, this scene took place in Silicon Valley, where there’s no such thing as an inappropriate social context for consumer technology and, in fact, in the very town where Steve Wozniak lives (Los Gatos). Letting kids use or own iPads is controversial.

Everybody’s asking: Are iPads healthy for children? I’m here to tell you: That’s the wrong question. The right question is this: Is the iPad a healthy *replacement* for TV? The iPad is scary because it’s new. Gosh, thanks, society! I could go on for pages. . * The iPad can be taken outside.

Dropbox 1.4 Brings Tabs Back, Direct Uploads from Other Apps

Originally released last May on the iPad (a month after the iPad 1 went on sale), the app was often criticized because of its unintuitive navigation and limited upload features that didn’t allow users to interact with external applications or navigate between folders and starred items with ease. The latest update, version 1.4, aims at fixing these usability issues by bringing tabs back. Instead of having to tap on buttons in the top toolbar, Favorites, Uploads and Settings are accessible alongside the main Dropbox folder in a series of tabs at the bottom. The most notable feature, however, is the complete revamp of uploads. Start Here. Welcome to, a tech- and design-centric website with an affinity for fine software and writing.

Generally this has evolved into a proliferation of websites, all involved in online stories and discussions about Apple's products and how to use them, with some specifically speculating on rumors about future product releases. Such stories and discussions may include topics related to physical products like the Macintosh and iOS devices (e.g. the iPhone, iPod, and iPad); software and operating systems, like iOS, OS X, and Final Cut Pro; or even services Apple offers like MobileMe or iCloud. In recent years, a more specific subculture within the Apple community has developed, where some websites will focus almost exclusively on rumors about new Apple products and services.

History[edit] The culture of mass discussion about Apple products goes back to when the company started to sell significant numbers of their original computers in the early 1980s.
