Back in school again and interacting with crazy kidz again. The 20-something crowd and their gadgets.

I have an IPad that I use for everything from class readings to Netflix.

It gets wiped off pretty regularly as I like the look and feel of a clean shiny screen.

I swear there's one student there who hasn't wiped hers down since she got it. It's got a grotty disgusting greasy film on the bottom third where she does her typing.


That is all.

It's only funny until she catches that brain eating amoeba thing.

I wipe my iPhone down all the time. Can't stand the feel of anything on the screen.

I wipe down the touch screen part of my BlackBerry daily.

I wipe down my Nook often, but I don't use it everyday... so probably every time I use it, I wipe it.

Oh boy... Going to find out what I should be using to wipe my tablet that I apparently don't wipe down often enough.

Go watch a YouTube video by vsauce. He figured it up that if you were to lick the screen of a smudgy phone, it would be about five calories. My kids and I watched it so now if we see each others phone, there is always a comment about how many calories are on it.

Depends on if you're sitting, standing, laying down, and how fast the licking is.

We wipe down our tablet sorta often.
