Bostonian, those are good examples. I have almost no experience with iPads so I actually appreciate the real-life examples.

Despite the way I sound, I am not a Luddite. We actually do plan to get a tablet sometime fairly soon, and the kids will also get their own laptop in the relatively near future. We will probably have to break down and get smartphones, too, because one is basically expected to have one these days. My husband keeps encountering this at work. I really am concerned about this, though, because my work follows me around enough as it is. I don't actually want to get emails when out of the house.

Boy, though, my kids are not getting iPads at their school anytime soon. Ha ha ha. It is to laugh.
