Computer News – have you heard about “Real Pad,” a tablet designed to AARP’S specifications? For a very reasonable price you get a tablet that is lightweight and portable and it has a camera on the front and back. It allows the user three important things seniors love to do; send e-mail, play games and listen to music.
