So… What Are You Gettin’ The Kids For Christmas?

Technology has taken over our lives. Today is the 29th anniversary of the first text message sent to a cell phone. We now send about 4 billion text messages every day in the US. That’s over 140 billion texts every year. This morning, when I sat down to eat a bowl of Lucky Charms, what was the ad I saw on Yahoo…of course, it was for Lucky Charms. They even know what cereal I’m eating before I even eat it!

Now technology has taken over Christmas. If you are a parent you already knew this. Now Nielsen is reporting almost 50 percent of kids want an IPad in the next 6 months. The blog “IPodnn” reports “Nielsen: iPad dominates kids’, teens’ holiday demands”
“21 percent of those 13 and older want the device. The iPad mini is fourth place amongst the 6-12 group at 36 percent, and ninth place in the 13+ demographic, coming in at 11 percent. Beyond the iPad and iPad mini, other top-placing products in the 6-12 category include the Nintendo Wii U (39 percent), the iPod touch (36 percent), and the iPhone (33 percent). For the older cohort that changes to a computer (19 percent), a non-Apple tablet (18 percent), the Wii U (17 percent), and the iPhone (14 percent).”

Gee, I’m guessing MY kids were in this survey. :) Oh well, I don’t need to eat next year…Happy Holidays! On the other hand, you could win some great Christmas presents and gift cards at our VIP club at wfgr.com. Sign up and win today!
