Today my sister and I took our mother to the Apple Store to buy a computer. After playing around with the MacBook, we realized it would be overkill for what she needed — email and photos — so we looked at the iPad. I had played with one a few months ago and know I will get one at some point, but really thought the screen would be too small for her.
But this nice young man, Brett, helped show her how to do things and before you knew it, she whipped out her credit card and said “I’ll take it!”
Here’s a picture of Brett and my mother holding her new iPad.
My mother is no ordinary 92 year old grandmother — she’s been texting on her cell phone for the last year or two, and not one with a full keyboard either. She took to the touchscreen keyboard right away, and before I left the house, she was up and running with her gmail account.
I sent her an email asking did she like her new toy and she responded…
Yes!! I am learning and having fun

Ok, I’m off to set up her iTunes account so she can download apps…
