Which is better: TV, the computer or the iPad? My favorite thing is computers because they have fun games on them, and I just like playing with the keys.

I like my [Nintendo] DSi because I have a Crafting Mama game, and it’s my favorite game to play with because it has two things to do: You can either make crafts or play with your crafts. I also like to play with my mom’s phone because it has some fun games…and my mom’s iPod because it has songs I like “Another Saturday Night” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”

How long are you allowed to play? I get to play for a little while after my homework is done.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to work on the news because I can be on TV and learn about the world.

Which is better: TV, the computer or the iPad? The computer, especially my mom’s Mac

What is your favorite game? Modern Warfare 3. I tricked my baby sitter into letting me buy it.

How long are you allowed to play? Thirty minutes a day, if I’ve done all my homework and taken out the trash.

What happens when you’re asked to stop playing? I say, “Just one more minute.”

What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a Navy Seal or in the Marines, not a writer like my dad. You just sit around with your glasses on all day. That’s boring.
