Autistic kids—the iPad’s new demo?

Kinda hard for anyone to hate on iPad after reading this story. With apps like iMean for iPad, it’s pretty cool to think that a device looked at as this toy for early adopters can potentially affect lives this way. Approximately 1.5 million people suffer from some type of autism each year in the U.S. Figures show it now affects 1 in 110 people. Considering the number of iPads sold in Apple’s first quarter is now over 3 million, this could turn into an unexpected partnership of sorts.
