Honestly, right away. I have grandkids so they're exposed to the tech at birth (so to speak) - cell phone pix showing the birth, etc. ;)
The level of exposure is what needs to be controlled along with responsibility. My 4yr old grandson doesn't need his own rocket launcher and his 7yr sister doesn't need access to "buy online."
Common sense - just like in the old days. :)

Today's computers and iPods were yesterday's wall telephones and radios.
Things change and technology advances (or say they so). Young kids will be around it all the time. Moms will hold babies while chatting online; kids will play on Xbox Kinnect instead of going to the park. There's not really a set age to allow anything. Of course, kids shouldn't bring a PSP to church just like they shouldn't have brought a yo yo.
I say everything in moderation and keep track of age appropriate material for all of it.
By the way, you may think that iPad is expensive but keep in mind... the average annual salary in 1940's was around $1300. If you factor in inflation, that yo yo just may have cost more.
