Did you know that experts estimate the average ten year old will spend at least $30,000 on mobile technology during their life time?!?!? Click here for the story. Does that strike anyone else as a high number? Too low? I mean that’s a lot of instant messages, isn’t it? I really don’t know since I’ve never used my phone that way, though my husband’s work blackberry seems permanently attached to his hip somedays. I’m thinking my daughter won’t get her own cell phone for at least ten years until she’s sixteen and driving. Why on earth would a ten year old need their own anyway? I can’t think of much good that would come from that…Hmmm.
