This is a college town. This kid has been unable to find a job after trying so very hard. He plans to move back to Virginia and live with his parents. He is devastated and very depressed. He says he won't be able to talk to his girlfriend, look for other jobs outside of that area, etc. as cell phones don't work well. She is in Seattle. His Internet, if any, might be dial up. I was going to suggest a 3G iPad so he could use Skype but I don't want to give him false hope. Would it work?
