Apple It's one of those days again: Apple held a product announcement today, announcing several new products. The most important of which was rumoured about for a long time now: a smaller iPad. It's called the iPad mini, and has the potential to become the best-selling iPad - and thus, the best selling tablet.

I don't know about your country, but here in the UK we run a scheme where parents pay for the iPad through an agreement the school sets up. The scheme is like a rent to buy type arrangement over 2 or 3 years. £10 a month. Includes insurance for accidental damage.

The claims on iPads or horrendous though. Giving any tablet to a young kid is pretty stupid. They break them with a regularity that is astounding. Some of the excuses we hear is almost as priceless as "my dog ate my homework".

Would I ever give a Nexus 7 tablet to a child? No. It would be broken in half the time. The iPad is a sealed device. The Nexus 7 can be pried apart with a fingernail.
