A scene from "My Horse." Kids, horses are expensive.
Dear parents, you wouldn't trust your kids with your money, so why do you trust them with your iPad? It can amount to the same thing.
I merely wonder this somewhat aloud after the peculiar tale of Lily Neale.
Lily's dad, Lee, gave her his iPad to play with. So Lily played with it. The only problem is that Lily is eight, so when she played with it, she started buying lots of in-game goodies.
You know, trinkets and horses -- or whatever it is you can buy when you're having fun.
One day, dad, an aerospace designer, couldn't put his hand inside his bank account. It was completely frozen.
He looked a little more closely and discovered that his little Lily had spent 4,000 British pounds (the Neales live in Somerset, U.K.) through his iPad. Well, she wanted to be happy.
Apple had sent Lee e-mails to congratulate him on these fine purchases, but, as he told the Mirror, he didn't notice them.
Lily admitted that she'd seen her dad enter a password, had remembered it, and had used it. As you do.
