Re: This year, iPads are buying iPads!
For sure we are still controlling the machine. It's of no surprise that iPad is the best-selling tablet and somehow dominating the market. It brings a lot of benefits and convenience to our daily life. But we cannot immerse ourselve into it - we have a lot of other things to do in addition to just playing with iPad. Remember we always have our heads and cannot rely too much on the machine - not only iPad, but all kinds of computing devices in general.

This year, iPads are buying iPads!
Not only are iPads selling well, but my information indicates they are the mobile device on which the most purchases are being made, ahead of the iPhone and far ahead of Android sets. So we have iPads buying iPads. We're sure mankind is still in control of the machine, right?
