Just a few days ago, I was gifted an iPad 2 for my imminent 83rd birthday. I am still getting used to it. But I am very keen to use it for pleasure and freelance writing. I am a retired test pilot and fairly familiar with PCs but never used a Mac. I also have an iPod Touch which threatens to be come surplus after I get familiar with the iPad.
Right now I am trying to get my wife to use the iPad for email etc though she has never used a computer before. This is an interesting challenge.
Please wish me luck.
