    What 12 year old needs a phone? Ipad? Or whatever else? When I was that age I was outside! Playing with my friends, getting fresh air and having fun! Tag, hide and seek, soccer(football for you brits), football(whatever the hell you brits call it ), baseball, swimming, riding bikes, all this stuff! I don't understand kids these days. I would much rather be outside all day then sit in front of a screen all day.
    My kids do all that right now. They are both outside playing in the yard...

I've bought them both a DSi, DS Lite, and 3Ds, and all are working just fine. How much would that come out to be on the launch of those systems? They were younger when they got the DSi/Lite....

    So, no , I don't see any issue with getting them an iPod Touch if that's what they wanted.
    I'm talking about the iphone, not the ipod touch.

    Yeah, but for what reason? Launch lineup is a joke. Not much new about the console hardware/software.

    It's the "new device" syndrome.

    I didn't mean to direct that at you specifically just in general. I don't have any desire to own an ipad so I don't understand why a 12 year old needs one. People in general have become too attached to these devises and kids that age don't need those sorts of things I think personally.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    I wouldn't say "need", other than they try and make it seem like that when begging their parents lol. My kids barely ask for anything at all. My son, won't let us buy him new shoes for school. He's wearing a pair he got two years ago, that are still decent. The same with clothes, etc. My daughters, they love getting new things. However, they never ask for anything as if the need it. Usually they are pretty specific about what they'd like to get, and why. I understand what you mean because I see a lot of that in other kids and families.

    Brought my tablet to the holiday festivities yesterday. Set it down on the $#@!tail table and then went to the kitchen to chat for a minute. Came back and my 19 month old nephew had opened it up and had one of the playlists running...rocking out. He got lucky of course but found it fitting the topic.

    The kids just mimic with what we $#@! around with everyday.

    Personally I think the ipod touch is a great little device for kids, at the right age of course. My daughter is 10 it works a treat for her ,K9 is her web browser not safari. but as I say, she still plays DS. Here wireless gets blocked automatically at 8 o'clock at night, and she listens to all her music on it, and temple run get played a lot. Its fun device, but a ipad would be to big for her.

    Funny you should say that because my parents said the exact same thing about video games when I was growing up. It's just that it made more sense for them to say it since they weren't bombarded with flashy new consoles and handheld devices like the PS1 and Game Boy Color back in their day.

    Kids get brain washed by the media, they see 5 hundred ipads a day on TV shows, why wouldnt they want one. Doesn't mean they know any better and even if they got one they'd probably play with it for a half hour and then want to go back to their Wiis or 3DS'.

    I bet if you added "Dinosaur" or "Pony" on that list possible things they could have the ipad wouldnt even be a consideration.

    Not surprising. The iPod touch is a great little device, and it is a great present. They can use it for music, video, camera, games. Easy to carry with, fully digital content and the price even though is not cheap, it isn't too expensive.

    Plus you can always get a much cheaper 8GB 4G iPod touch for the kids that easily lose their stuff.

    I feel old saying that. These kids these days, I'm 21 for christ sake! I just haven't gotten sucked in like other people have. I love my consoles and PC but I'm not all that thrilled with my Droid phone. Next phone I'm not sure I want to be a smartphone. I don't need to be so connected all the time with this thing.
