Yeah, you are right AQ_OC, In the past Uncle Ruben would call all of his relatives and leave messages because he took a funny picture and wanted to mail it to us but he didn't know how to get it from his camera to his email.
Saturday 03/17, he got his new iPad and after showing him how to use the back camera and then once he's taken a picture he can press it and type in the email, he has been doing that ever since! I've gotten pictures of my uncle and his veteran buddies drinking GREEN beer. I got pictures of him, my aunt, at church during Sunday School class. I got pictures of my uncle and aunt @ lunch....oh well, I'm running off at the mouth....since I'm the only other relative in Fort Wayne, I'm his 'go-to guy' for anything technical.
This iPad is going to help me help him a whole lot easier than when he used his laptop to first, create a folder, second, open new folder, third connect camera to pc via usb (what does that mean Matt?), once pc recognizes camera, open camera folder where picture is located (but Matt, all these files have the same name!!-->not really uncle rueben, go to view settings and click on thumbnail,but I can hardly see that picture, I have to open each one up, is that okay Matt?, yes uncle ruben, that's fine). once you find the right picture, download it to your camera. fifth, go to your email, type in the email you want to send the picture to, and then click on the paper clip, find the picture, attach it and then send it.
By that time, Uncle Rueben's eyes have a distinct glaze over them and he is looking at me like I've grown two heads...So when I got his iPad to him, I had him take my picture (ugh), then go to the photo file, press on that, press on the arrow in the upper right corner, type in email address, hit send. We practiced it for about 3 minutes and after that he was a photographing, email sending Uncle Rueben. His photos, taken from his new iPad, is just as good as his little Sony Cyber Shot. He heard about this grand pa and grandma on the news the last night where they found out about Photo Booth and started posting in YouTube. Now my uncle wants to know about Photo Booth and uploading video-->Matt, can my iPad take videos? YIKES!!!
