I may be in denial (a common state of mind for me) but I am NOT getting addicted to my iPad. Except perhaps for that doodling game and Netflix. And maybe a couple of word games. I'm putting it down to the novelty factor; any new thing demands hours of play time, seeping into sleep time, and housework time. Who hasn't spent five or six hours trying to beat 8 year olds at Pictionary? Who, indeed, hasn't forgotten to pick up their daughter because they needed to beat their own high score on Word Twist? And I know for a fact that people have failed to get their ironing done because they watched the whole first series of Monk back to back.
