100 Year-Old Woman's First Computer is an iPad

(YouTube Link)

Watch this elderly (but very sharp) woman interact with a computer for the first time in her life:

We, Virginia's family, wish to say this video was made within minutes of her receiving her iPad. ? She quickly caught on to how to read and write on it, activities which were impossible before. She cannot read large print books any longer as her glaucoma prevents this. Glasses are useless. She loves to read and is a avid poet, now writing many many limericks for fun. She does not bend over the iPad, as you see in this video, but now puts it on several pillows.

Thanks for the video! It’s so cute and inspiring to see how this old woman manages with such a high-tech gadget as iPad. I respect that she is so curious and lively at her 100th year. I wish all old people were so full of joy of life as Virginia.

Thank you Chris Johnston! Not one other person mentioned how bright and youthful she is! I'd never guess she was 100, maybe 80s. Good for her! I can only hope I'm that vital at 100 (science-willing)
