Some of us got together and got my mom and IPad for her birthday. She has never used a computer before but I am sure she will be great with her IPad. I offered to take it home and set it up for her. In the past, I never could have set up a system for someone else. But, this time I did it. Plugged it in. Triple clicked the home button and the voiceover came on and I could do everything. It is a much bigger screen than I am used to so had to get used to that. I set up an e-mail for her, downloaded some apps,, put some of her friends in her contacts, and did it all without any help. What a liberating feeling that is.
