hmm - the hacking aspect is rather concerning.. although the boy does use a rather long, random password. And he's more into interacting with 'trolls' it seems.. of the big hairy kind (in WOW) .. personally I will never buy Call of Duty and have it in my house.. not surprised at all it turns kids.. trolls or not.. kinda mad.
Ignoring trolls gets real

_So this kid is playing Call of Duty, and then the S.W.A.T show up thinking there’s really a gunman in his house. No, this isn’t some kind of ad campaign showcasing how ‘realistic’ the game is - this is something that actually happened.

A teenage boy in Lewisville, Texas, was chatting away with his friends in the lobby of a Call of Duty: Black Ops game between a match. “Some dude just popped out of nowhere, and basically said he's going to hack me, he's going to get my information, call the swat team over to my front yard," the teenager, whose parents have asked that his name not be used, told CBS._

nice tip... had to drive through the snow yesterday to drop the boy at the park to meet a girl (a friend... for now at least!). Funny he thought that going to meet her was no trouble at all (and he managed to get the bus home later by himself) - but was convinced the school would (should) be closed today because of the settled snow.

As I tried to raise him from his cave this morning.. I asked "why should the school be closed" ... "because it's dangerous" he answered.

I'm not generally one for panning health and safety but these schools have a lot to answer for... creating a whole generation of (UK) children that think everything has to grind to a halt as soon as some snow falls.
‎"Have some old bits of carpet to put under the wheels for traction in case you get stuck on snow/ice" - Are you packing a bag for the car in case you get stuck? If so, what's in it?

Great buy for working parents of teenage boys IMHO (and yes he will still eat his dinner.... he doesn't stop eating these days )

Not my teenager... but one day perhaps (he still seems to think Twitter is just about saying what you had for breakfast)
