BETTER HIDE THAT FROM THE TEN-YEAR OLD...:

Computer games are 'good' for kids say experts (Daily Mail, 26th October 2007)

Experts are now telling us computer games are good for kids.

A study has found children who play computer games before school achieve better grades than those who don't.

In a pilot scheme run by one school in Dundee, pupils showed "dramatic" improvements in the classroom after gaming for 20 minutes before lessons.

Another one of those studies spewing utter nonsense.

The game, called "More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima," features a number challenges, reading tests, problem-solving exercises and memory puzzles.

No S--t, Sherlock.

It's a learning game. What would the results be if we do the same study using HALO, GTAuto, and the other tripe Chinese and Indian programmers write up to stupefy the pre-diabetic members of "slacker nation."
