iPad overcomes glaucoma, changes Granny’s life

iPad news getting old? Not for this shiggy-wiggy. In her 100th year, Virginia, a granny from somewhere in the States, has made news thanks to Oregon Live ;) . It’s not without a little bit of arm-twisting though; her family bought her an iPad.

While the video is viral now, there’s nothing cute about her interest in the iPad. She has glaucoma and hasn’t been able to read books for a long time. Evidently, the iPad has allowed her to pick up her old (and good) habit thanks to Apple’s iBooks. But her talents don’t stop there; she is also a verbose poet, having now completed 12 limericks on her new toy, the most poignant, below:

To this technology-ninny it’s clear
In my compromised 100th year,
That to read and to write
Are again within sight
Of this Apple iPad pioneer.

Keep up with all the funny-duddy iPad stuff here.
