TV or computer? The answer is obvious

By Steve Outing

Me (Dad): “If you could only have one available to you, which would it be: TV or computer/Internet?”

Daughter, age 15: (without hesitation) “Computer, because with TV I couldn’t be in touch with all my friends. You can do so much more on the computer — even watch some TV. TV is just one small thing, but the Internet is so much more.”

Is anyone surprised by that answer? I’m sure it’s typical of people her age. (Actually, I’d give the same answer.)
