    That is a great example of a typical tablet user. They spend a lot of money for something that really just useful for watching movies, checking email, and reading the web. To justify the cost and to show off, they have to find a way to use it in places where simpler technology is best.

      Don’t know where my son read a listed titled something like “The mot stupid things this generation has made”, written by a kid.

      On the top of the list? Buying a $700+ tablet to play $3 games.

        We had our generation of stupid tech too. We still have it!!!

        Consider that $500 junker that can’t even pass emissions about to pass you on the road. Now look at the $5000 stereo in it – rattling YOUR windows!

        Now, as far as wiping your butt with an iPad goes, it seems Bobo may have figured that one out – get someone like Dumb Ass to LICK IT!

      Indeed. It reminds me of the story about the USA developing the “space pen” with the pressurized ink that writes in zero g and underwater. They are actually damned cool, and I carry a “bullet” version in my pocket most of the time.

      But, for space flights, the Soviets just used pencils.
