    MUST READ!

    New York Times reporter Nick Bilton says he once asked Jobs “So, your kids must love the iPad?”

    Jobs response: “They haven’t used it. We limit how much technology our kids use at home.”

    - The Times article examines the growing trend among the California Silicon Valley tech set to limit children’s technology use. Many of the people behind the social media platforms, gadgets and games that are consuming our kids’ time and minds aren’t actually allowing their own children to waste an entire Saturday afternoon playing Minecraft on the iPad.

    - Some of these Silicon Valley engineers and execs are even going to the extreme of sending their kids to computer-free schools.
