Creating a New Generation of Boring Bloggers

Elliot has a portable computer from Leap Frog called MyOwnLeaptop.

He enjoys playing with it, and it's hard to complain about a laptop that costs $25 (that's a 40th the price of a MacBook Air). But I wonder about the "blog" feature.

It gives you suggestions for blog topics, including "I spent all day at the beach" and "I spent all day playing in the garden."

BORING. What message does it send to children if that's portrayed as a valid topic to blog about?

At least it doesn't recommend writing about lunch.
