The 99-year-old tablet user and YouTube star
At first, there was a clutch of two-year-olds on YouTube getting to grips with Apple's latest product. Now it is the turn of a 99-year-old woman who has taken to computing like a duck to water and has become a sensation as a result.
According to an Oregonian newspaper, Virginia Cambell of Lake Oswego loves to read, but has not been able to enjoy her books due to glaucoma. And then she heard the hype about the iPad.
"It's changed her life," said her daughter Ginny Adelsheim. This is music, no doubt, to Steve Jobs' ears.
Mrs Campbell told her local TV station that "when I was born in 1910, they barely had the automobile in use". Now she has turned into a YouTube star with nearly 90,000 hits and counting.
Other tablets are of course available, but even the most hardened cynic or Apple-sceptic cannot help but crack a smile at the sheer delight Mrs Campbell seems to derive from her new toy.
Ms Adelsheim said her mother is so enamoured of the device that "she's writing all of her poetry on her iPad now. Her handwriting is so scratchy. It's so much easier because she can actually read it. Others can read it, too."
Mrs Campbell clearly loves her new toy so much she has penned this ditty in its honour.
"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."
