    Hi guys & gals!

    I don't have an iPad yet but now playing with my 81 year old mother's iPad trying to learn how the whole Apple ecosystem works and at the same time teach her. I already have questions about about the iPad works with Photo Stream and ATV3 so thanks in advance!

    Yes she is amazing! She loves her iPhone although she knows very little beyond calling/texting but when it comes to her iPad I'm not even sure she knows what to make of it.:confused:

    Since I'm new to IOS I'm having to do a crash course in all things Apple usually I'm the one who buys a device first and then teaches it to her but not this time. I'm not sure how much she uses her iPad in general but I do know she barely uses it for emailing so I'm going to try to change that. I've already learned quite a few things so when I give back her iPad next I will have some new things to show her like setting up Photo Stream, some new apps, etc.

    I bought an ATV3 to see how it interacts with her iPad 3 and have been pretty pleased with the experience so I believe she will be getting one of these for Xmas... I think she will be pretty excited to stream photos from her pc to her tv.

    As for the ATV3 I already bought well I'm keeping it for my own iPad which I hope to get in the next few months.:)

    Thank you. How do I post a question to the forum? Doesn't seem straightforward.
