How the iPad can make long car journeys easier with small children

October 12, 2011

“Kids always sleep in cars!”. When the geekdaughter was tiny I heard that all the time. And it isn’t always true. It wasn’t true for me then, and it’s not true now. We learned at an early age that the geekdaughter would only ever sleep for a maximum of 30 minutes in the car. Maximum. […]
