It is not new today that kids, in as young as 5 years old, already knew how to play and manipulate computers, netbooks and other gadgets. This does not exclude my niece and nephews, Didang, Didong and Abong.

In fact, I could say, that somehow playing with the netbook has brought them good things like identifying letters, proper pronunciation and reading of words and some phrases. And of course, even if you left the netbooks with them for 5 minutes or so, there’s nothing to worry like data loss because kids themselves do not know how to erase hard drive. But their time span in playing with gadgets is only limited to not more than an hour, so far.
