A stimulating statement there — a magazine is an iPad that doesn’t work — however as this post over at Gizmodo points out, the statement has merit as far as one particular 1-year-old girl is concerned.
As the video’s anonymous creator notes, for this 1-year-old girl, “A Magazine Is an iPad That Does Not Work.” She tries to pinch, tap, and zoom paper pages. And why not?

Note how the little girl is trying to make the magazines zoom and move. She just assumes that it’s how things should work.
