I'm not sure what the point of that article was.

Was it to show that this kid is really tech-savvy? Because she's not. She's just a kid who knows that touching stuff on this bright object does stuff. Was it to show that magazines are dying out? That might be true, but the video doesn't do a great job of illustrating it. Again, she's a baby. A kid who was a few years older and somewhat capable of cognitive reasoning would work better. Like if Dad gives 5-year-old Timmy a print book for the first time and he goes, "What's the point of this? Where's my iPad?"

And the author of that article doesn't even bother to provide any personal opinions and insights into the video, either. He just posts a video on the page, and that's it. Like he's sharing something with friends on Facebook. Lazy ass.

I used to be a regular visitor to Yahoo! and even had it as my homepage, so I could see the latest headlines and things. I stopped a long time ago when I kept getting increasingly irritated with the shoddy "journalism" on display there. It's not really even journalism; Yahoo! just pays people to pen poorly written blogs, and for some reason they feature them as if this was somehow providing valuable contribution to consumers. I can't believe some of these people actually get paid, at all. I've seen tweets that were better written than the various Yahoo! blogs.

Anyway, that's the end of this rant.
