Om Malik writes about his mother using his iPad when he went to visit her in India:
When at home, I did a FaceTime call with my siblings who also live overseas. I handed over the iPad to my mom. She had this look of amazement, one of pure unadulterated joy as she chatted with her grandson.
It didn’t matter how it was happening — just that she could talk to her grandson who was oceans apart from her. If there ever was a moment that captured the emotion in a piece technology, that was it.
He left the iPad with his mother. Something tells me he’ll be getting a new one soon though.
