My DD says she wants a Iphone for grammar school. I am reluctant to get her anything other than a simple pay as you go.
Reading this is an eye opener. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-35752625
"The thought of having real conversations and maybe even reading a book seems to be way too much to handle", so says a kid at the school.
The truth is social media now is facilitating real conversations through a mix of vlogs, video conferences, messaging etc.
I have no idea how common they are, but our experience with an IPOD bought for Xmas has been pretty negative.
Any thoughts or experiences.
Garden pea mention her colleague spent a boat load on kit for her DS at KES, and he came home 8 days in and said he had lost £200 worth of stuff "somewhere" on the way home?? All had to be replaced.
Against that are they sort of required tools of socialising these days!!! Or just a daft, over priced bit of kit that that they don't need need..
