the iPad. Good or Evil?

I think all parents find themselves torn when it comes to their kids and technology. The truth is that an iPad can keep kids, or anyone for that matter, occupied all day long. With different stimulus. Unlike the video games of my day, Atari and Game Boy, which were basically the same actions over and over. The iPad is infinite. Videos, YouTube, Games, Apps, downloads, art, pictures.
It's like the action figures in the house, the puzzles, the books, sports, and superheroes have all taken the back seat to the iPad.

But, on the other hand, it's important they learn this tech because it's everywhere. The library. The classrooms. Red Mango (for crying out loud!). The car dealer. You name it.
 Everywhere you turn there's a touchscreen interface that is beckoning you to swipe and stay awhile.
