Kids Who Grow Up Using iPads Have Restricted Vocabularies

This may be the dumbest damn tech-fear-mongering story I've ever read. "Our brains are hardwired to learn new words when we hear others use them in conversation. But as children increasingly learn through devices instead of listening to others they do not get the opportunity to hear a wide range of words." Imagine the hullabaloo when the printing press came out: "Why, our children will be READING! How will they learn to speak??" An iPad can TALK BACK. Idiots.

Not that they'll be reading this, of course.
