We are in a smartphone generation.

On average, kids are getting their first devices at around 10 years old.

Some say that's way too early, and you might be surprised where that's coming from.

With a phone in every hand, Silicon Valley must be really excited.

That might not be completely true according to Adam Alter, the author of "Irresistible." He said Steve Jobs looked at technology a bit differently.

Those in the industry might be at the forefront of getting the devices out of kids' hands.

Alter said 75 percent of Silicon Valley executives want to send their kids to tech-free schools.

He said children gravitate to easy, and screens make everything easy - with a click, it's all right there.
