60 Minutes: Apps for Autism

Last night I really felt in the mood to watch 60 minutes after dinner and I'm so glad i did. Although it was a repeat, the broadcast featured a special tribute to Steve Jobs, interviewing biographer Walter Isaacson of the bestselling book of 2012 titled Steve Jobs. The last segment of the program discussed the influence of Jobs' ipad applications on autistic people. As a recent uncle, I try and discourage my niece from overuse of the ipad. This segment gives me a new perspective and appreciation for the good that can come from use of technology in the right way.
