Orangutans across the world may soon join the ranks of millions of humans as proud owners of new iPads. As strange as that may sound, a conservation group is testing its "Apps for Apes" program, allowing orangutans to communicate with each other remotely via the iPad's video chat technology.

Do apes have the Right to use I-pads ?

Apes do not have "rights" in the traditional sense. But it does open up a new pathway of studying their communication. Could have some interesting stuff come from this.

Hmmm, chat with apes or some of the "people" here... 6 of one, half a dozen of the other!

According to Darwin there is no difference.

Jared Diamond's "Third Chimpanzee" is an interesting book about us humans.
