Baby confuses magazine for ipad

Are children becoming exposed to technology too early?  Is it a sign of the times that children can often use new devices to a higher standard than their parents?  The following video shows a one year old using an iPad, then the same one year old with a magazine, trying to use touch screen gestures and obviously failing.

What does this say about the way in which our children are now developing, that they can use touch screen gestures on an iPad before they can walk or talk.  Are iPad apps designs with babies in mind good for their development, can use of an iPad improve hand eye coordination and aid in learning?
