Remember the days when you could get a graduate a leather briefcase or a watch? (we don't but are sure there was once a time like that)
These days the kids want a flat-screen TV
. 31% of the polled graduates wanted a flat-screen TV rather then anything else, including a new computer. But should they get a flat-screen because they earned their diploma? Sure, why not.
They probably already have a computer, cell phone, digital camera, and PDA. What else are you going to get 'em. Oh, just make sure the flat-screen has a Kensington Security Slot
so the TV doesn't grow legs and walk out of the dorm room.
