2.5 Year-Old Uses iPad for the First Time

This video has been circling the web the last few days… a young girl is frenetically working an iPad supposedly for the first time. She never pauses on anything for more than a split second. What do you think? Does this frighten or excite you?

this is only two minutes in the life of this little girl. it doesn't mean she doesn't go outside or do all the things you wish she was doing instead of this.

it doesn't claim she hasn't used a i-pod touch... this is like a big one, she could already be versed in this form of interface. Also technology and progressives can also be as one, the revolution will need emails.

The iPad has only been out for a couple of weeks, so it doesn't really matter if this video shows this girl's first time playing it or not - we know that she hasn't been doing it for long (though, she may be familiar with iPod). Kids are smart and they learn fast, way faster than adults! Her adeptness on the iPad doesn't mean she never plays outside or doesn't have a well-rounded childhood. I certainly don't see it as an indictment on her parents or on society. The iPad is just another everyday object that a child is exposed to and that is neither exciting nor frightening.
