"the thing"

Our home has now been infiltrated by a tablet, and though it was a present for my wife, my daughter has laid claims on it. She is somewhat familiar with the iPad interface through relatives and family friends, but it did not take our 6-year-old much time before figuring out how to maneuver in Android to take photos and videos, and draw. Later that evening, my wife took it away from her because it was causing social detachment and strife, resulting further in a minor tantrum, tears, and overall bad feelings. The situation reminded me of the first 20 minutes of the film "The Gods Must Be Crazy".
