THE WEEK Contest: Go play
This week’s question: Two major Apple investors have warned the tech giant that frequent use of its iPhones and iPads has a negative impact on children, and that it must research ways to limit the devices’ addictive appeal. If a software company were to design an app that persuaded kids to put down their gadgets and go outside to play, what would it be called?
Last week’s contest: A nationwide fitness chain has banned cable news from the TVs in its gym, saying today’s toxic political environment is bad for people’s health. If a fitness instructor were to devise a workout routine in which incensed gym goers burned calories while raging at cable news, what name could it give the new fitness regime?
