Last night, five-year-old Arden Hayes demonstrated an incredible knowledge of geography on ABC's ( DIS ) Jimmy Kimmel Live :



He also demonstrated the power of the Apple ( AAPL ) brand. After his Rain Man-esque performance, Arden was given two prizes: a world map jigsaw puzzle, and a Sony ( SNE ) Xperia Tablet Z.

A $500 tablet isn't the worst thing in the world for 90 seconds worth of work, but the kid reacted as if he had just smelled a handful of fresh dung.

Like Apple CEO Tim Cook, Arden is dreaming of an iPad Christmas.









"Wellllll, you could just...give it away, because I'm planning to get an iPad for Christmas," Arden said.





He kept the puzzle.
