Thanks in advance for your help and rude comments. I’m puzzled with what to get for my parents this Christmas. My sister says that they would like a tablet. I looked into it and I can get a 10” tablet from Verizon for $99 on a two year data contract. The data plan would mean that they never have to worry about connecting to Wi-Fi for the damn thing to work. A little background, my dad is 72 and mom is 68. Both use the computer for email, games (old people type) and Facebook. They are set in their ways, still use AOL. Dad has trouble getting around, Marine Corp, labor type of employment and boxing has taken its toll on his body. Mom is getting over a year that involved cancer surgery and a heart attack (4 stents). I’m not as sure as my sister that they would enjoy the tablet. My wife and I use ours at home or in the car all the time, it’s a great source of information. I see my parents looking at this as another piece of tech that will irritate them. What are your thoughts and/or experiences with old folks and tablets?
