A Note from School

Sam has been doing really well at his new preschool. Today, he brought home this note for me:



"Papa play time" is what we do when Deanna is making dinner and I get them out of her way for a while. You should see him on the iPod touch- it's quite remarkable how well he can navigate his way around. Obviously, the teacher wrote what he was saying for this note, but there's no doubt the words were his own. I'm looking forward to the Father's Breakfast!

One suggestion. Put that note into your briefcase, or backpack, or whatever you carry around with you. When you're having one of THOSE days, pull out the card and read it.

I promise that you'll be transported back into the moment, and be able to put everything else into perfect context.

It's AMAZING how well kids can navigate on the iPod Touch/iPhone. Kenny knows how to do YouTube (which is not exactly a good thing...) and to get to the Photo and PhoneSaber applications without assistance. I think it is just a testament to how natural the touch input is on those things...

Makes you wish for an educational device of some kind (say a 8" or 10" tablet with the same kind of MacOS X touch interface) for schools...

Great idea, Ron! I just put it in my laptop bag.

And Ken- totally agree with you regarding kids and the iPhone and I think you describe it perfectly with the word "natural". The biggest problem I have with my iPod touch is getting time to play with it when Sam's not hanging off me. A tablet would be fun- for Dads too!
