So on that basis parents shouldn't let kids use PCs either?

Then seriously they shouldn't have access to them. That's my point.

If they are old enough to be carrying around an iPad then they are old enough to be responsible for the content they access. If they are not old enough for the content, then perhaps they shouldn't be given an iAnything.

This has always been a big concern of mine. I'd like to keep my kids safe, but I also want to keep them intellectually safe, as in I want them to be able to use the tools they need. I took two approaches. First, I vowed to keep ahead of my kids in this area of technical literacy. That was not easy to do and I may have finally lost that now that my oldest is in college. The other approach I took was to educate my kids and teach them how to use technology responsibly. This is a pretty risky method, because kids don't always use their education the way us parents would like, but so far, I think it has worked. I suppose I won't really know if it worked until the kids are in their 30's, finally telling stories of the things they got away with.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
