A woman suffering from glaucoma has taken to read and write thanks to Apple's tablet.

Virginia Campbell, an American woman of no less than 99 years, in one fell swoop has denied the cliché technology almost exclusively the preserve of the young and became a commercial free living for Apple.

Virginia suffers from glaucoma, a disease that prevents us from seeing the good and especially the deprived her of her two greatest pleasures: reading and writing.

One day a family has heard that the iPad was on sale and decided to give it to him; she has learned to use it right away and found the opportunity and the pleasure to read, increasing the brightness of the screen and using the zoom function of the characters.

The light weight made ​​the iPad a device comfortable to use even for an elderly woman, who when in possession of its new tablet has begun to read and has already finished two books.

"It changed his life," said Ginny Adelsheim, the daughter of Virginia Campbell, speaking of the iPad.

And she is so happy with his new purchase - which is also, by far, his first computer - to have composed a limerick in his honor (one of the twelve who created these weeks):

To this technology-ninny it's clear
In my compromised 100th year,
That to read and to write
Are Within sight again
Of this Apple iPad pioneer .
