However, and much to my astonishment (and delight), a couple of weeks ago my wife expressed an interest in having a tablet computer. I let the thought settle and then today, when in John Lewis, we had a look at some.
I was quite impressed how quickly she seemed able to use one.
We didn't have a look at the iPads but did look at ones from Nokia, Microsoft, Samsung, Google(?).
Being a Windows 7 user I think I'd feel more comfortable with a Windows machine, though Android looks similar ("Can it run Google Earth?" my wife asked). Rightly or wrongly I feel 2 Windows systems are more likely to be able to interact.
I'd be interested in comparative views on the various tablets? Bear in mind it would be for a very non-computer-literate person.
We have more and more laws, and less and less enforcement
