Apple lets kids play with iPads rather than iMacs
Apple's retail stores have featured a "kids table" since the first one opened in 2001. It's low to the ground with soft seats and Apple hardware running kid-friendly software. Up until now, the hardware for the kids tables has been the iMac -- but it seems Apple is switching to iPads.
Rene Ritchie at iMore noticed that the iMacs had been replaced with iPads at his local Apple Store, and a few readers reported the same thing at the stores they visit. Mike Rose reports that the Grand Central Terminal NYC store opened with iPads in the kid section.
Almost one year ago, Apple replaced the in-store product information cards with iPads. "Post-PC" indeed.
