I'm from the PC world, but the only way to get my wife onto the Internet and e-mailing was through the iPad. The kids and grandkids all convinced her she would love it. She tried theirs and did love it. Now I'm in the unenviable position of having to learn the iOS, which is quite different from what I'm used to. My wife is a fast learner, but I don't want her to become frustrated and discouraged. So, I think this is a great Forum and I'll probably be back here, along with my wife's questions.
