Virginia's new iPad

Check out the video below of 99 year old Virginia Campbell using her new iPad.

According to The Lake Oswego News, Virginia hasn't been able to participate in one of her favorite pastimes: reading. Due to glaucoma - she was finding it difficult to read. Using the e-book feature, along with the ability to enlarge text, Virginia is not only reading again - but is also writing poetry!

She has even written an ode to her new 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.
