Back in my day, a child was doing well if he could persuade a ZX81 to display his own name on a black & white screen before it crashed for no apparent reason. These days, Amelie can access the internet unaided, navigate to the Cbeebies website, find the Swashbuckle page, and then upload a family photo and turn herself into a pirate...
