Bundles of Software for Kids

Techstination feature for Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Bundles of software for kids. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. With the summer months approaching, kids will have more time on their hands. And they often want to spend some of that time using computers in the household. A company called PeeWee PC has created USB drives...with software to ensure safety...and educational games that kids will find entertaining as well. President Oscar Ferreira....says just plug the drive into a USB port...

"The exact process is you'll get a start up screen very similar to when you insert a CD ROM into a computer. And it will go through all the different programs that are on that USB drive and you would have to manually click install." What kinds of software and what are the age ranges that you're targeting? "We break it down into three different age groups: pre-k, early elementary and upper elementary. And essentially they all come with five software titles."

Covering a range of subjects. The price? About 30 dollars. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
