APES GET APPS AND IPADS
Orangutans are considered to be one of the most intelligent of all primates. And so maybe it's no surprise, then, that app developers are now creating programs for these animals. It's not a marketing scheme, but a way to stimulate the apes. As part of Orangutan Outreach, founder Richard Zimmerman has donated iPads to zoos in Milwaukee, Florida, Houston and Atlanta.
The interactive technologies allow the apes to play drum noises or fingerpaint in electronic mediums. Zimmerman says he hopes the animals will also be able to use Skype Face Time to communicate remotely with other orangutans at zoos in other cities. For more details, visit Apps for Apes, where you can also donate money.

Yes. One said it. Management can be replaced by apes with iPads. This is actually a step up from previously held beliefs that "Management Can be Replaced with Cats" of a few years ago.
And a note to Minions and Henchmen in One's employ: One is NOT a Manager. One is your Dire Lord and Master. If you are not quite clear on the difference, take yourself down to the dungeon, and beat yourself to unconsciousness. If that doesn't work, apply to Me later for your free iPad.
