The San Francisco Chronicle carried an article about how the Apple iPad was popular with seniors. Chronicle staff reporter Ryan Kim wrote "IPAD Appears to be Clicking With Seniors".
The article also referenced ElderGadget, a useful website that carries news and reviews of products that have "elder-friendly" features.
