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 ?

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