Barack Obamas wisdom: iPad, Xbox and PlayStation, imposing new strains on democracy.

"You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank that high on the truth meter," he told the students. "And with iPods and iPads, and Xboxes and PlayStations -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. So all of this is not only putting pressure on you; it's putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy."

Microsoft has sold more than 40 million Xbox 360 consoles worldwide and PlayStation 3 has sold over 33.5 million consoles worldwide, Appel so far sold 1 million of iPads in USA only, total makes it 73-80 million gamers.
