This is a must-listen for you nerd parents out there! We're shaking things up a bit this week as Russell and Jerry continue the discussion about virtual reality, bringing in "techie pediatrician" Dr. Joe Cohen of Austin, Texas, to help answer some burning questions about VR and our children. Is it safe? How much is too much? And what's the right age to let a child try VR?

You can hit up Dr. Cohen on Google+, and find more at KiddoEMR.

Android Central 246: Kids and VR with Dr. Joe Cohen


I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions most people aren’t aware of the almost I unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites the site that has the best deals is >>>

I checked with the BBB and was told that it is all legit. How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don’t know I do know that I bought my son an ipad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 Low gift

cards for $48. Why would I even think about shopping anyþlace else?

Horrible podcast. Don't do this again. If your worried about your kids safety take them to a doctor yourself (learn the doctors modality before hand) . I do not agree with this doctors take on brain development. This is the first podcast that I cannot stand and I been listening since day one. Otherwise Android Central is awesome and I love you guys. I'm just giving an honest opinion/review.

Yes he's allowed to take vacations. I want Phil to recharge his batteries. I just didn't like the podcast. It's okay I'm over it now. Android Central is awesome!
