    Orangutans, it turns out, love the iPad and its games just as much as some humans do.

    A budding program at the Milwaukee County Zoo is working to place iPads into the giant, gentle palms of their orangutans. Two of the zoo's orangutans already look forward to weekly sessions with an iPad. They even have favorite apps, shows and games, but they haven't yet been given free rein with the Apple device because keepers worry they might get frustrated and simply snap one in half.

    You will understand after you have been here for a bit. All of tanks threads are about the same subject.
