    Same here. It's the 'new' way of having a photo diary of their childhood. A neat idea i think. Whether i'd want to store the data on googles servers i don't know but the idea of doing a digital diary like that is pretty cool.

    MK-2, welcome to the brave new world where

    Ipad = Computer
    Facebook = The Internet

    Anything else is inferior. Apparently.
    I always thought that Google = The Internet? Or did they have a bad release

    I could use my Amstrad CPC running BASIC at 2 year old. IMO kids aren't limited by their abilities, but rather by their parents expectations.

    I have to say, the Apple hate on forums such as this is just stupid. I highly doubt this topic would have been made if it was any other brand advertising the same product, even using the same advert.

    Nah, people make fun of all sorts of brands. Like me, I make fun of the Blackberry Playboy... err.. Playbook.

    I dont think it's just apple, but I do think they have particularly bad adverts at the moment(or maybe it's that I've just watched more TV?) But anything geeky with a dodgy advert is going to get made fun of on here because of the type of people who access this website.

    oh that's good....the neg rep i got with "What an idiotic and ill informed post. No wonder some schools see techicians as a barrier to progress!"

    i didnt realise that an advert aimed at the entire population of the UK was what was stopping schools progressing. i'll go straight out and buy 25 ipads as i wouldn't want to hinder progress in the school.....now how do you suggest i integrate them into the everyday learning here?

    yes, yes it would. and i'm sorry, am i not allowed to voice my opinion on an advert? if a car advert said "buy this car, because its now in black instead of white" would i not be in my own right to criticise it, or would it then be "oh the amount of hate for car maker x is silly". if a baked bean advert said it gave me superhuman powers, would i not be allowed to ridicule it for fear of hating on heinz? just because i chose this advert does not mean its an apple hate forum. as AyatollahPies mentioned, we have also criticised Microsoft, Google and Blackberry adverts....I think that pretty much covers a wide range of computing doesn't it?

    have to see i to am very annoyed at the ipad advert as well as the terrible windows one (The windows ad is odd even by apple standards. Are they saying if you dont buy a new machine, we will invade your house and force you?). But these pale in comparison to the stupid iphone ad with the line "if you dont have an iphone, you dont have an iphone". Think reason we all get annoyed is that there aiming for the mindless masses who will get anything that is thrown on there tv's, they are prob the people who would love to play with shiny keys. I wonder if there's a deleted scene to the ipad ad, something along the lines of "to an IT tech, its a pain in the neck", "to a parent its another christmas headache".
