Apple is being sued by parents who claim the iPhone-maker is unfairly profiting from in-app payments in games aimed at children.
Many games on the iOS platform are free to download but offer game add-ons,...
The group said it was too easy for children to run up big bills without "authorisation of their parents".
Apple had called for the case to be dismissed, pointing out that in-app purchasing can now be disabled.
Marketing and selling to children is a touchy area.

B&N sells Nook and Amazon sells Kindle
with all these electronic payment methods, people don't "see" the money they are spending and have a real disconnect with it
kid probably needs that cash for booze and drugs instead of technology that can help with studying via eBooks and not dragging around big heavy back breaking hard copy books, long term spinal damage, and don't forget the wholesale killing of innocent trees

Wife and I got all those too.... Tablet's a whole different experience and the Nook tablet is a nice
the current cycles leave you doing all your research just in time to make it all obsolete info.
which caught my wife by surprise, is they now take TOKENS to play the games unless you're winning. Lost a couple of games and next thing you know you're spending actual cash buying tokens
