"Forbes has put together an interesting list of three things the iPad does well for seniors. The writer points out that Apple's iPad makes it easy for seniors with bad eyesight to adjust the text inside apps like Safari or iBooks. Safari's pinch to zoom text adjustment is especially easy because there's no menu button commands to tap, unlike with iBooks."
I don't think anyone can argue the ease of use of the iPad, being able to pick it up and start right in is definitely an advantage especially when you are talking about our senior citizens. I really don't think the glossy screen is a disadvantage, unlike the author of the article, but then again I have the glossy screen on my MacBook Air too. What are your thoughts?
