99-Year-Old Writer Enjoys iPad

eBookNewser readers love viral iPad videos, and we’ve posted quite a few: iPad meets cat, iPad meets dog, and iPad meets toddler. Today, 99-year-old Virginia Campbell scored a viral hit with the video embedded above–capturing her experience of reading and writing poems on her brand new iPad.

Filmed inside Mary’s Woods Retirement Community in Oregon, this video shows the elderly reader exploring the iPad–apparently the device makes it easier for her to read despite glaucoma. As of this writing, the video earned more than 463,700 views.

Here’s more about the video: “Campbell, widow of former Lake Oswego Mayor C. Herald Campbell, has never owned a computer before–or a Kindle. But when she heard all the hype about the iPad she wanted one … Campbell has been writing and reading on it ever since. ‘She’s writing all of her poetry on her iPad now,’ [her daughter] said.”
