I think the part that feel insane to me is that it's 'THEIR" ipad. Everyone in the house has one? Why??? What a waste! Why can't all the family members share one? Apple admitted to using Chinese labor workers to create apple products. I dunno, it just feels silly to me when there are starving, homeless children, women, and men in the world.

Everyone in the house has one because we can afford them, I don't see the issue.

Yes see I understand the mechanics of it, but why? I just find it really unnecessary and wasteful. Like I said, wouldn't the money from one of those ipads be better used donated to a charity? Plus the workers Apple uses are really mistreated and abused.

So dont buy from them. Where and how I choose to spend my money is nobody's business except mine and my husbands. I donate plenty to charity year round doesnt mean I cant have nice things or give my kids nice things. The world will always have problems and poverty im not going to throw every extra penny I have into it.

It's just wasteful to the environment as well. The extra energy and material it takes to make all of those ipads. And do you really donate to charity? Because I have a feeling a lot of people say that to feel better about themselves.

Soooo wait people instead of spoiling themseleves or their children should feel guilty about other people's situations and instead donate to that? There are people starving in the United States. Not my problem!

And again dont buy it but telling me how and where to spend my money is pointless. Yes I donate to charity do you want my receipts or something :roll:

You get so defensive. We are all human beings, of course we should try to help each other as much as we possibly can.
