There was an article in the WSJ about iPad owners : http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2011/04/19/a-look-at-ipad-users-apple-still-trouncing-android/?mod=e2tw Age above 65 is 6.2 percent in the article. I am just in the above 65 group and have friends of my age and over with iPads. I know of 4 people above 80 that have bought iPads for themselves. Not given as gifts, but they heard about the iPad and thought it would be a great replacement for their notebooks or desk computers. My father ,84, his brother, 86, my 90 year old neighbor and one of my father's friends, 89 all bought iPads. Anybody here over 80 or know someone over 80 with an iPad ?
