99-Year-Old Woman Buys iPad – Her First Computer

I don’t have a lot of family, at least not on my side. My grandparents have all passed, and most of the others are estranged in one way or another. Really, the only real relatives I have left are my Great Aunt & Uncle, and they live 2,500 miles away. I’ve often considered getting them Read more…

All Pages, All the Time
Some time ago, I decided to say goodbye to Microsoft Office forever, and completely switch over to Pages and Keynote.

Shuffle Headphones Broken? Apple's Got your Back
