Come now just because someone is one year old doesn't mean they can't use the internet.

But it's bad for tiny kids to use things like computers and tablets because of the screens, even if little kids are amazingly adept at using them.

Yesterday, I helped someone pick out a crappy tablet. He's going to give them to a few spoiled 6-year-olds. I'd love to see reactions tbh. It'll all be glitz and glamour at first, but noooooooooope.

It's the 21st century; kids grow up so fast when we have computers and tablets.

I don't get how these people can afford all these expensive gadgets for these children who are just gonna wreck it. My first gadget was a gameboy pocket and that was a huge deal.. my bro and I had to share it and we weren't allowed to bring it to school. my first cellphone was a cheap blacktextgreenscreen one in highschool and only had like $5 credit on it a month just in case I needed to call my mom after school. I had it for 4 years. I don't even think it had texting capabilities, or very basic ones if it even did.

Actually I think my first gadget was a tomogotchi.. haha.

I never had a cellphone until my first semester in college. I never wanted a cell phone because of the reports of the raditation it produces that can cause cancer if you catch it by placing your cell phones next to your head. It was even reported to mess with bees' coordinations and ended up killing them.

I still don't have a phone, though I do have an iPad that I share with my brother.

I didn't have one until I was in college either, and even then it wasn't all that great. Though now I has a one of the Galaxy phones and it's my new best friend.

I got my first phone around twelve . . . and even then everyone in my grade had already had their phones for a year or two. ._. Well, not everyone, but still.
I never really used it, and I still don't use my current one all that often. I use it to call/text my parents, my boyfriend*, and sometimes one of my friends**. I used to text my sister, and sometimes Skymin (lol) but . . . I dunno, I stopped.
*he has a crappy phone that I try not to text often since it uses minutes //pfft
**also my boyfriend's cousin, so I mainly only text him on the weekends when we all hang out on occasion. Otherwise I use Facebook.

Yeah, sure, hate me now. xD

Christmas is coming soon. Just after I end the world, so it'll all work out, don't worry.
I kind of really want to get Soulcalibur V, lol. I rented it from Gamefly a few months ago, and after playing with Link on my bf's Gamecube, I got into the Soulcal mood so I've been playing Soulcalibur IV. I want V though, because that's more versatile. lol
GOTTA START DA FIGHT, SO SEE Y'ALL LATER.

Ugh, all these little kids getting phones and gadgets. Meanwhile, I can't afford to by a really awesome $10 scarf from H&M. The thing was a thing of beauty... =(

Don't remember when I got my first cellphone, don't even care. I'm always behind on the current technology when it comes to phones anyway. By the time I get my first iPhone, Android or whatever, everyone'll have moved on to microchip implants (actually, if they start doing that, I seriously hope people take a stand against it).

I've only just started getting mileage out of the current phone I have ever since I've moved, because the only people I spoke with were my family and neighborhood friends. I saw them daily anyway, so the phone was nigh but an emergency gadget. If I didn't recognize the number, even if I gave it to employers, hiring agents, etc, I never answered. And that's if the phone was even on (most of the time, it wasn't).

I can barely remember my cell phone number, and when people text me, even after I gave them my phone number, I still don't respond thinking "who is this"? So, phone communication + me = bad. Something I'll need to work on, and will probably get accustomed to.

Back in my day, we'd actually communicate with each other face to face blah blah blah social deterioration blah blah blah. Sign me up for the old folks home as well.

Haha, I've never ever seen an older phone like that in person. I'm too young I suppose.

So basically if you dropped it on the ground, you'd be breaking the ground and not the phone?
Man do I feel behind times. Everyone is like, texting and everything, tweeting from phones, updating their statuses, and I'm wandering around looking for a strong wi-fi signal just to be able to do that.

Anyways totally unrelated

Yeah I need to set up accounts to post directly to image hosting websites.. it'd be handy! I don't like when the phone doesn't close my apps and stuff though! Advanced Task Killer seems to help but sometimes they all pop up because once you log into gmail it decides to log into your google account for everything else and is mega annoying!

Or maybe I'm just n00b

Correction: Phones and tablets and iPod Touches should be make of Nokia phones. Less broken screens that way.

I've had the opposite experience. I dropped my iPhone 5 more than a dozen times from a decent height and all I got was one thin scratch across the screen. The only way you'd notice it is if you actively sought it out.

Most of my tech problems have been due to overheating, whether it be due to overuse or the fan just being too clogged up with dust.

What sort of Apple product have you been using? My iPod Touch has fallen two stories and landed on CONCRETE and survived just fine, lol.

My sister has had horrible luck with Apple products so it seems to be person to person. I myself can't really say much since I've only had one Apple product and until I lost it (but I will find it someday I hope sob. I would love to listen to music without having to use my phone kthnks) and it always worked for me haha.
