Number Crunchers

Here's a nice tearsheet from Brian Pineda, for Parents Magazine.  It's interesting to think about what kind of computer you would get for a kid.  There are so many considerations.  At what point does it stop being education and become more of a toy?  And where do you draw the line?  All I can say is, kids these days have no idea.  When I was a kid, we had Pong and Number Crunchers, and we were happy.  Sheesh!
