Hell, my son is five and can Google. Might as well not bother sending him to school, eh?


Probably not.

From what I've read, he should have his wife home-school the kid.

I think this is a bad idea, mainly because I think tying learning into electronics is a bad idea. I've seen so many people who can't do basic math because they started using calculators in 1st grade. Emails at work have horrible spelling since it doesn't have a spellcheck. I fear for the future based on the freakouts I've seen if the internet goes down.

I suppose I should admit that I am a dying breed (even though I'm under 40). No cellphone, no facebook, no twitter, no understanding as to why any of it is necessary.

Why doesn't your email at work have spellcheck...? Even Yahoo mail has spell check. That's really strange...

Facebook can be convenient and useful when you move thousands of miles away from your family and friends and you want to keep up with and share pictures with one another.

And you can't really organize a popular revolt these days without twitter. It's a political tool!

Yea, very useful to know that they over slept and are running 15 minutes behind today...

I do like the create an event option though. That's useful, so I guess I stand corrected.

I don't use Twitter for people I know, I use it for people I'm interested in. Of course, I'm a big dork so all the people I follow are political journalists and stuff.

When my husband had his stroke, I used Facebook and my cell phone to report to my friends and family what was going on. So much easier than running to a pay phone to call everyone individually and give them info. Especially since I was feeling SO chatty during that time.

Yeah, Facebook has no use.

I don't tweet or twitter, but my 77 year old dad recently got a facebook page, so I have to check in occasionally. My family is spread all over the country - we share pics through fb and keep tabs on each others comings and goings.

It's just another tool. If it wasn't fb there would be some other electronic medium that would have expedited and stream-lined social communications.

It's convenient in getting news across to a broad group of people, useful in that it can do it with minimal effort, and ... it really isn't fun so you're right there.

I have a Facebook mostly due to the social obligation of it. I have just about everyone on it set to not show up on my feed, though. There are maybe five or six people on there who I actually use it to keep in touch with.

If you are using it as a substitute text book, note book, etc., how do you keep it charged for a full school day?



How long do you think a "full school day" is? I think 8 hour battery life is not all that hard or rare to achieve, and that's assuming you'd have to use it the full 8 hours. But I don't remember ever using my text books for the entire time I was in school.


Can't speak for this particular tablet but my tablet holds a charge for at least 10 hours for regular use.

The vast majority of my most useful paid work involves using a search engine.

Too bad for the chillins, by the time they are my age, using google won't be considered a special skill anymore.
