Three years ago, when he was just two-years-old, Max Fuller got his first iPhone. His father, Craig Fuller, the CEO of a banking technology company, said it’s been an “enormous tool” for teaching him the basics about colors, shapes and letters, and most recently the names of all of the dinosaurs and how they lived. But Fuller most appreciates how it allows his son to communicate with him, since he’s divorced and lives in a different state. They video-chat almost daily. “It gives me a chance to be in his life, even if I am not around as much as I would desire.” He expects to give his one-year-old, who lives with him, an iPhone, as soon as he’s ready. “I think it’s one of the most incredible tools ever made for helping kids understand the world.”
