iPad has 'changed' 99-year-old woman's life

From Cnet: iPad has 'changed' 99-year-old woman's life. An excerpt:

According to Adelsheim, her mother is now reading books on the iPad, thanks to its ability to increase the size of text to a readable level. Campbell has also increased the brightness on the display to further enhance her reading experience. And although she has never owned a computer, she is now writing poetry on the tablet.

Perhaps fittingly, Campbell decided to write the following limerick tribute to Apple's iPad:

"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.

I like that the iPad has helped someone get back to reading.
