but, in each case, how is a child to know where to look?  how can they know
what something is about before they start it up?  how can they see the
range of things available without having to examine each one by itself?
cute names of 500 different apps don't help.  the search problem is as real
for a child as it is for an adult.  that's why it was found that Sugar
users click on hundreds of activity buttons every week - but they don't
engage in hundreds of activities...  they are just poking around in the
