Re: GIVING KIDS a SMARTPHONE = ADDICTION ........ Sunday Edition... CBC

Smart phoned and tablets both.

Mainly because the prime use is to play damn stupid games to keep a fish tank stocked with plants. Bloody ridiculous.

I have a Wife who was given a tablet by one of her daughters who now can't leave the bloody thing alone, If it isn't one or other game its youtube watching cakes being decorated.... Lord help us.

Then worse still my was 8 now 9 year old Granny is a games expert... What is going on in the parents mind I don't know.... Oh yes I do...they are playing the same bloody stupid games.

What will they say at the end of their days.... Oh yes, I had a great life sliding coloured balls along a line to get a bomb.  Pulese.

Sure I waste time on here, but whilst it is of no real consequence, I do manage to irritate the hell out of a lot of people.... smile

And yes previously I have flown Cesnas and 747's across the Atlantic, but at least it bore some resemblance to real life activities, and I did get bored fairly quickly. Not these ball sliders, they get points for all they are worth. Yes it is like a drug.
