The Nintendo Wii generated headlines when it was launched because it was innovative and easy to use. Gaming on the Wii was so simple–anyone could use it. The iPad is the equivalent when it comes to computing. There’s no file system to deal with and no maintenance issues at all. It’s the perfect device for people who are new to technology.
