A 77 year old friend of mine is looking at getting a computer. She uses one at work but doesn't like them much, and pecks slowly at the keys. I wonder if her getting an iPad is better than buying a Mac or PC. The computer will almost exclusively be used for 1) email 2) photos 3) web browsing 4) solitaire I'll probably eventually encourage calendar, and weather apps. I could set her up on my computer I guess and sync down to the iPad - but if in 2 years time I'm not around and her grandson plugs in his computer to help her update - she'll lose everything if she syncs to him. Right? An OS update is easy, I'm worried about the content syncing. On an iPhone if you move to another machine (even after 2 years with no PC in between) you pretty well lose any iPhone stuff you sync, replaced by the other machines stuff. I suppose that basically I'm asking... can she backup her photos somewhere, from the iPad? Also, I'm wondering whether photos can be loaded effectively onto the machine. Can she crop? Rate? make albums? She has all her photos stored in her camera at present. What are your thoughts everyone?!?
