The iPad and the train

I think that cartoonists often  are among the most perspicacious of us when it comes to reflecting on the (side) effects of technology. I particularly liked today’s Alex cartoon in the Daily Telegraph about the effects of the iPad on people’s expectations whilst travelling on trains. Take a look, and bring a smile to your face.

How might you use this as a starting point for discussion with students about how technology changes our expectations in a whole variety of contexts?
