Who says technology is just for the young?

The Oregonian says a video of 99-year-old Virginia Campbell receiving her first computer – an iPad – has gone viral on YouTube.

The woman loves books, but glaucoma makes it difficult for her to read. You can enlarge the print, and it has a much brighter screen so you can read on it more easily than with a regular computer screen.

Now, she spends her days reading and writing limericks on her new device. She even wrote one about her iPad:

    To this technology-ninny it’s clear
    In my compromised 100th year,
    That to read and to write
    Are again within sight
    Of this Apple iPad pioneer.
