Although I did finally show my dad the iPad the other day, today’s strip was actually his reaction to my mom showing him pictures of the family dog (Uncle Willie) on my iPhone. He, in fact, did grab the phone and asked the images to bark and sit, but he was kidding. I think.
While it’s sometimes funny to see my parents using new technology, I’ve been impressed at their reactions to the iPad. My mom was looking for tape recorders (yes, tape recorders) on Amazon, and was doing a good job navigating around using the touch screen. And my dad did tap a few links when I was showing him some motor bikes via Google. If I keep working on those two, maybe they’ll want one by Christmas.
