Toddler Plays iPad

Here's a fun video of one smart kid. The iPad is a game-changer for parents. The kid gets that you have to start over every time. When I play with an iPad, I'm stymied by the one-app-at-a-time aspect. I keep wanting to go back to the last one, and I can't. I want it to do what my laptop and BlackBerry can do. Apple sacrificed for speed.
