Apple products dominate kids' Christmas wishlists, according to research from battery firm Duracell.
those kids get a ton of money, almost enough to make me think were not in a recession.
you're rich enough Bill
In other news Cabbage Patch dolls outsell 'Baby Born'.... who gives a flying F. Next.
Those kids are loaded...do they need a brother?=P Fallout New Vegas and CoD: Black Ops beat Kinect in my wihlist...
I used to work retail, and I can say that no matter how the economy is, people still buy their kids Christmas presents. That's one place that people avoid cutting very much if they can help it. That said, other people below are right. This is a "wish list" survey, not an "intent to buy" survey.
Kids wish for an ipad? Isn't the cheapest one around $550? Holy crap, and I thought *my* parents were generous when I was I kid.
That is why protables are such big sellers-- they can can take them anywhere and show them off. Some of them are even gamers. The only reason I could think of for a kid wanting to carry around an ipad. Thats a no, no for my kids. one already has an over priced itouch.
Well if they can afford ipads..
said Kinect was going to beat iPad. Man, the bs Microsoft spiel.
Kids are buying iPads now?!
. + iPhones too? Loaded parents for them I think. :p
Well, it's a wishlist, not a reality list. They could wish for a Ferrari, doesn't mean they're gonna get it. Besides, it's not like theyre gonna wish for an apple
well some parents like to spoil there kids, personally I wouldn't want an iPad since i have the iPod touch and I don't want to look like a douche when I pull that thing out my bag.
I've seen someone pull one out of his pocket once. One of the advantages of wearing a Thobe is that you've got pockets so big you can fit a slim PS2 in there! (I've tried it and it works!)
some kid got his ass kick at my bro's school for showing off his ipad (stupid rich kids), i bet that little fucker will think twice b4 bringing a new one to school.
Violence is never the answer, however some brats can be really annoying, one should mail them to africa over the holidays or something.
Damn, Ipad hating or Kinect hating... Im so conflicted my god...
You'll get your donkey kong country returns and like it!
Doesn't suprise me.. microsoft are always playing catchup these days with the stuff which takes off and by the time they come around, people have moved on. In two years time microsoft will be releasing their tablet computer too.
because MS are trying to catch up to Apple with Kinect??? GTFO
they are trying to catch up with Nintendo then again, so are Sony but MS are trying to catch up with apple with their new Windows 7 phone...so yes, they are always playing catch up in every are that isn't otherwise software =)
Yeah and Apple is trying to catch up to Windows 7..........
..Why would someone that age need an iPad?
Writing from it right now! Only use my computer for playing games now. Everything else, iPad. Word, Internet, even games I do on my iPad,of course they aren't as good as pc or console, but they are fun as hell. Best purchase I have ever made, will never get the iPhone though, more of an android os kinda guy.
Everyone complains about Apple, yet they make the products that everyone else tries to imitate! Now bring on the replies that Apple is bullocks and they make shitty products! Come on Sony (@(|< suckers!
They make a bunch of expensive as hell computers that can't be upgraded to stay with the times, instead you have to throw them out and buy another brand new over priced computer.(Rinse and repeat...) Show me anything Apple and I'll show you the same computer built on Newegg for $500 to over $1500 cheaper.
What can't you upgrade in a Mac? Maybe you should check your facts!
Im kinda in the opposite situation, love my iphone but would never get a ipad, love the fact that id does pretty much anything i want, except for flash, do the ipad do that?
whoa kids are rich,i have to buy everything from my own money dont get me wrong my parents have money but they want me to fell how hard it is to make your own money
i hate apple and there stupid devices, i'm a PS3 owner an i would rather buy a kinect than an ipad or itouch (yes thats how much i hate apple).
you hate a cooperation. now thats misguided energy right there.
Indeed, think about what you could make if you fucused that energy into something creative.
Pray that Apple doesn't buy them or you may have to give up gaming! Tard!
Surprising result, I wonder how many of the kids were teens.
Rather then loaded parents, maybe it's just wishful thinking
My parents didn't have all the money in the world, but we seemed to have very nice Christmas's. Because of how my parents were as individuals, I'm a very hard working guy. I'm also very giving. What I'm saying is...there is always the exception to the sociological assumption.
Smart choice is to get a ps3 if you dont already have one save up for 3ds or psp2, or save up for the 2011 games that are coming to ps3. To many freaking games on the ps3 to be buying shitty kinect right now kids.
that so many PS3 fanboys have so much time to troll Kinect/xbox posts? With all the games you say the PS3 has, shouldn't you be too busy playing them to care about these articles?
I thought this would be 2 totally diff. audiences...
All that marketing is not getting through to the kids for Kinect I guess. It all started with a few parents buying their kids iPads... now all the kids want one.
remember all the kinect defenders talking about how N4G doesn't reflect reality, well all the kinect defenders butthurt that kids don't really want Kinect and the apple hate goes to further that observation. apple products are a status symbol, plain and simple. Whether they're better than everything else or not won't stop droves of people buying the products, just because it's an apple product. went to verizon to ask about getting a droid incredible, before I left 4 people had come in to ask if verizon will be getting the iphone. the droid is better, but they don't care. Back when I was younger when cell phones were starting to get big with adults, kids were already getting them just as fast, so naturally like everything else that costs money you're going to start to have children who get the most expensive/trendy version of that thing (yes children as young as 5 have iphones, and ipods, and imacs, and macbooks... scary I know, but years ago I was an AT agent for blackberry (prior to the iphone/droid takeover for phones when blackberry was the trendy phone), and you wouldn't believe how many phone calls you would get from elementary and junior high school students about their phones.) It wouldn't surprise me that kids would be asking for ipads. apple stores are popping up all over the place, kinect TV ads haven't even started, but I can't go 20 minutes without seeing an ipad commercial. edit: sorry but you can't disagree with fact. clicking the button won't stop kids from asking for the ipad.
Why is a battery firm doing surveys for one device that doesn't even use batteries and another device that has a built in battery and cannot use replaceable batteries?
Seriously what kid want an ipad? Iphone and itouch are a little far fetched for any kid under 10. Honestly i rather get an xbox with kinect than an ipad though.
