I was reading the Brian Dudley column in the Seattle Times on September 20, 2010 on gaming consoles and I just had to share the last two paragraphs.
"Otherwise we'll be facing another digital divide. Upper-crust kids will have virtual pets and play virtual sports in front of their big TVs while their parents smile and look up from their iPads.
The hoi polloi will be stuck with low-definition Wiis. Or, heaven forbid, forced to play with real animals and balls while their parents pass sections of the newspaper back and forth."
This hits so close to home!
