Computer Use a Boost to Young Minds, Study Finds

This is a very interesting study... it finds that young children who are exposed to a computer generally are much more prepared for school and have better fine motor skills.

They admit the study is not all-encompassing or exceedingly precise, but their findings make plenty of sense to me. The flip side is that *no* benefit exists in having video games in the home. This isn't very surprising either...

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
