Adorable Baby Tries to Use Magazine Like an iPad

by Shane McGlaun

My kids have been using gadgets and electronics since they were old enough to sit up straight. I know I am not the only one that has kids like this. They both love the iPad and the iPhone and when it comes time to watch a show or play a game, they more often than not head for my iPad. My son also likes to read things on the iPad rather than print material.

I think that this video of a 1-year-old girl shows what is changing for kids today and the traditional publishing industry moving into the future. The traditional print publishing world has been living on borrowed time for a while now. Current and future generations of children are growing up with the expectation of interactivity.

To these kids, print publications are like broken iPads, just like this little girl. I imagine when these kids hit 5-years-old and start to read books at school, they may be forced to read printed books, but their preference will be for the interactive gadgets they grew up on. Many schools are already going to these interactive tablets and notebooks to save money on printing and improve interactivity. What do you think, is this video further indication of the impending death of print, or just that babies like to grab things?
