Reuters: Still plenty of demand for iPad: Survey

http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE66E5WH20100715

Quote:
The fact that the number of people planning to buy is more than 70 percent of those who have already bought is a good sign for a device that sells for at least $499, said Britt Beemer, America's Research Group founder. "That shows incredible demand for the product."
in other news from the same research group:

Quote:
In other questions, 55.3 percent of those with children at home said they do not pay them an allowance. That number is low and shows a continuing decline from previous decades, Beemer said. In the 1970s, the number would have been about 80 percent and in the 1980s it was about 70 percent, Beemer said.
What???

Well without knowing how old the children were, it doesn't really mean anything.

My parents didn't pay allowance. My Dad said he'd decide case-by-case whether to give us money. I quickly learned the value of earning my own money.

I got my first job at 14, which later led to a very fulfilling career, in which I have made more money than I ever expected. It also allowed me help support my parents in retirement. (They're immigrants who never made much money, so I offered.)

My Dad came out well ahead by not paying allowance, lol. Mileage will vary, of course.
