New Study Finds That More Children Operate A Smart Phone Before They Can Tie Their Own Shoes!

Well, isn't this just terrifying?

A new study has found that more young children know how to play with a smartphone than know how to tie their shoes!

According to the research on children and technology, done by AVG, 19% of children from two to five years old - in the US, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand - can play with a smartphone app, while only 9% know what to do with their effing laces.

Furthermore, more children in that age range can apparently open a web browser than swim on their own, and more can play computer games than ride a bike!

AVG CEO J.R. Smith explains:

“Technology has changed what it means to be a parent raising children today-–these children are growing up in an environment that would be unrecognizable to their parents. As our research shows, parents need to start educating kids about navigating the online world safely at an earlier age than they might otherwise have thought.”

Well, that's good and fine, but we think that you also need to educate kids on navigating the REAL LIFE world, AKA learning skills that will help them engage in physical activity and knowing how to be a functional human being!

Just saying!

BALANCE, people! Help your kids find a balance!

Thoughts??

iTunes And Safari To Become One?

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

itunes and safari rumored to become one

Maybe next they can also add an application that automatically transforms your PC into a Mac when you install iTunes. LOLz.

According to a new rumor from Three Guys and a Podcast, Apple plans to combine iTunes and Safari into one application, which would force PC users to adopt Safari as a web browser…or at least allow it to take up hard drive space on their computers.

Here's what a source had to say about Apple's plan to combine iTunes and Safari:

“Moving iTunes organizational side-bar into Safari isn’t a monumental task. Safari would skyrocket in use as a result of integrating the software titles together.”

Based on the rumor, Safari Tunes could surface as soon as early Fall.

Sounds pretty cool to us…then again, we love us some Apple apps!

How do U feel about an iTunes/Safari combo?
