At my age (69) it is good to be new at something. I've had my iPad since June and really love it. I'm retired and use it at least eight hours every day.
Things like: news, music, sports, reading, photos, netflix, word games, webMD, writing, email, and I probably google stuff ten or fifteen times a day. And when my five-year-old grand-daughter visits, I put a bunch of kid stuff on there for her.
Retirement is absolutely wonderful. To wake up in the morning and have the freedom of doing whatever I want to do. Judee (my wife) and I have been married 46 years, have three children, five grandchildren. I imagine I will need more help than I can give on this forum; but I look forward to the experience.
