    Fantastic story today on Cnet’s The Digital Home blog, about Virginia Campbell, a 99-year-old woman from Lake Oswego in Oregon, whose new iPad has “changed her lifeâ€, in the words of her daughter. According to the Digital Home story, which first appeared in The Oregonian, Virginia has glaucoma, which makes it very difficult for her to read or write. When she heard about the iPad, she thought that it might be the solution to her problems, and so her daughter and son-in-law waited in line to get one on launch day. Since then, due to the ability to enlarge the iPad’s print and the brightness of the screen, Campbell has been able to read two books and also to write lots of poetry, including this tribute to the Apple device.

    “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.â€​
