Within about 8 hours of having it (having gotten no instructions from me except "push the home button" to get back to the "desktop").. I was getting emails "sent from my iPad," along with pictures.
she even managed to talk to some relatives via FaceTime.. and my sister (lives overseas) vis Skype.
if my mom can figure it out, so can yours.
my friend recently caught his 4 year old son blabbing away on his iphone. He asked "who are you talking to" - his son answered "grandma".. he thought that was "cute".. until he heard grandma on the speaker.
kid barely knows how to poop in the toilet, and still can't eat Cheerios without getting some in his hair, but he can use FaceTime.

“Here Lew, I found a book I think you’ll like. Try reading it.”
With that he read down the first page and—exactly as Apple planned it—he swiped to the left to “turn the page.” <-- BEST LINE OF THE BEST PART
I didn’t see the iPad for the next three hours.

I was under the impression that Apple had done this in the name of interoperability and increasing the uptake for FaceTime.
If so, it seems as if no one took them up on it, or the licensing fees were too onerous.

Terrific article! Great presentation of the "to do this, just do that" told with heart.
Pleased to say I found something great to read, other than the Macalope, on this site for the 1st time since the big changeover to Macworld, TechHive, PC World.
I know, I know, "Change is good... but dollars are better," Groucho Marx (I believe).
Again, many thanks.
