Old people who actually watch CBS News aren’t going to be buying iPads. After all, they’re rejecting digital cameras. CBS wasted its money on this one.

Bosco you are so wrong on this. My family is looking for a nursing home for our great grandmother right now and the number of iPad toting grannies I’ve seen in the last couple of months is amazing. The last place we looked at actually boasted that they just added wifi to cover the TV room and near by patio for the “iPadders”

Touch?. I’ll do old people smack all day long, but I draw a thick line below nursing home smack. (Put Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune on those iPads and you’ll have a winner.)
