|Mom uses an iPad for the first time.|
Before she buys anything my mother does a ton of research and she was curious to see "what the big deal is about iPads." So I handed her my iPad and let her do whatever she wanted to do with it. She even got into my Facebook account on it which, as George Costanza would say, meant worlds were colliding!
After thirty or so minutes of using the iPad my mom gave it back to me and said, "this could get addicting." But she still had questions like, "is this any better than a laptop?" And most importantly for this context, "why are schools buying these instead of laptops?" (My mother works with elementary school special education students). I gave her my thoughts, but what would you say to my mother about iPads?
