How young is too young for children to use high-tech devices? Should they be out playing in the yard, interacting with other kids, or inside swiping and tapping on an iPad? In 2010, a New York Times reporter asked Steve Jobs of Apple whether his children liked using the iPad. "They haven't used it," Jobs responded. "We limit how much technology our kids use at home."
Walter Isaacson, the author of Steve Jobs, spent a lot of time at Jobs's home in Palo Alto, California. He described their lives like this: “Every evening, Steve made a point of having dinner at the big, long table in their kitchen, discussing books and history and a variety of things. No one ever pulled out an iPad or computer. The kids did not seem addicted at all to devices.”
