Hey people. Try something cool: Education. Exposing your kids to books and physical family box games, and not iPhones and iPads. The first step to make sure your kids are smart. And have their own opinion and mind.

i guess you didn't know, that research has shown an improvement in grades and performance in schools where they used Tablets in classrooms

Dude that person who made the video is completely busted. My kid is 1 also. He does exactly the same thing with all his books. They see the image & think they can grab it because images look life like. Especially to a 1 year old. The child see a person on the magazine & wants to grab or touch the person or item on the magazine because the only thing they can understand is the image not that it is a magazine. My son loves the lights from my tablet. So when he touches my tablet it makes different light patters, they can’t possible understand icons or whatever. To a 1 year old the icon is just a different colored light. Can anyone remember the Light Bright game? That is all. A picture in a magazine is realistic looking to a one year old because they can relate & of course they want to see if they can grab it. Also on the video the kid was just playing with the iPad, not looking at a magazine on the iPad. There is just so much that is wrong with that video. I love how the parent pretends to believe the Baby thinks a magazine is a broken iPad. I could put any title on that video.
“Steve Jobs has coded a part of her OS”. People are crazy!
It's normal baby behavior. I have 2 kids I know. I have a 3 year old & a 1 year old.

Can't believe that a so-called tech site hasn't thought that way before the tablets or iPads have been invented, this is how babies doodle with pictures/magazines/colorful illustrations! They touch it, slide their fingers on it, tap on it, and so on! OMG! What is happening with all you geek people? Is technology making people dumber and dumber?

you are absolutly 100 percent right, this parent should get the s**t beat of them for thinking this is funny.
33. downphoenix (Posts: 3165; Member since: 19 Jun 2010)
100% correct. Kids have been touching magazines like they would an iPad long before the iPad was even a thought. Touching and feeling and pointing is a natural action for young ones to do in their beginnings.

Why does it even think a magazine is a tablet is beyond me. Pretty sure it I saw it there turning pages of the magazine, and what is it using a tablet for anyway when it has know idea what it's doing.
Not concerned, like the video creator seems to be, about Steve Jobs who has little to do with this making this little girl think magazines will be iPads that dont work for "the rest of her life"

I know, the child clearly knew to turn the page. I didn't see the child try to turn the page of the iPad. Plus the child was fixated on the colors of the iPad more than anything. As a parent I own so many toys that light up when my child grabs it or interacts with it. The child doesn't think the iPad is an iPad. To the child it's just another toy. Now with the magazine she new to turn the page, only books do that. The magazine didn’t seem broken to her, she was doing what any adult does with a magazine, she was turning the page. AMAZING! WOW!

Guys missing the point here this video is not the true example but comes pretty close to reality.It is so!children of such(and of course) other ages have clearly lost the meaning of books,yes the know they exist,and no they do not use them!it is truly sadening to watch this,although the truth is the chld is indeed fixated on the colors of the i-pad but the fact of certain movements(the pinch atempt and also the page turning)show us that if left unchecked it may result in loss of interest in books!One might say ok it's not that bad,however if a child gets acustomed to it will it ever like anything else?And i'm not talking about toys won't lose that easy but good old fashioned books will....why?I know a couple of companies stealing children away from books!Don't get me wrong here i love technology and its evolution but to me some things are unacceptable!

Steve Jobs has never written a single line of code.
