Here’s yet another piece of evidence to suggest that digital natives who’re barely out of diapers will soon be bossing us all around: KPTV reports that recently, thanks to the miracles of intuitive app design, a toddler barely a year old managed to use her father’s smartphone to order a car on Ebay.

That’ll teach her parents to try to make her take that nap.

According to KPTV:

“After verifying the purchase, he realized that his young daughter, who really enjoys playing with daddy’s smartphone, had logged into the eBay app which can be used to instantly make a purchase.

‘Tap, tap, tap and now I own a car,’ Paul Stoute said.”

And yet it takes me half an hour to complete a PayPal transaction.
