What are Grandma's needs? That seems like the best way to determine which device would suit her more.
Ipod of course. Just help her get in her favorite tunes in there and she'll be grateful
get('ipod touch 4g');
else if (grandma==internet addict)
Grandma said she didn't care for either and to please forward both to me.
I'm like Relache, it really depends on what Grandma needs more. If it were my mother we're talking about, she wouldn't care for either one (hence the opening comment).
I wish the iPad had existed when my mom was still alive in the nursing home. I could not have left it there, because so many things got stolen, but I could have let her use it while I was there. She would have loved it.
iPad. The fact that you can have large text books and music at the same time. It seems easy to use. The ipod screen is too small for videos for older eyesight. I'm saying all this because I'm a grandma and I would LOVE an ipad. I'm thinking seriously about buying one for Grandad and it'll sit in a box for 6 months before I get to steal it. (I wouldn't need any help to set it up - remarkably fuss free pressie. Unfortunately my kids won't read this.
The answer is something only you can figure out. But there are a couple things that would make the decision easier. Does the grandma in question love music big time... then an IPOD makes more sense. Does the grandma in question love going on the Internet.... then an IPad is a good choice. Something not suggested, but if the grandma loves to read, maybe a Nook or a Kindle would be a better choice.
Without knowing what the grandma in question really likes it is hard to tell. My great-grandmother would neither want an IPod nor and IPad, but reads voraciously and would love a Kindle or Nook. My grandmother is not much into reading, doesn't much care for the internet, but absolutely loves music. Therefore, I would get her an IPod. My mother would also only be interested in the IPod. Myself being a grandmother, I would love all three, and none of them would be wasted. Hope that helped.
I think it should be an Ipad. She can play games, get on the net, play music, watch movies, read books...
I'll cast my vote for the Ipad. There are just so many more things she could with the Ipad. I don't know if your grandmother has a problem holding new hardback books but I know that it can be tiresome especially for the elderly. The lightweight design of the Ipad should allow her to read longer without her arms getting tired. Plus the Ipad screen doesn't flash when you change a page like other e-readers do.

I'm trying to write and publish a new hub on my iPad but when I go to add text it only allows you to add a subtitle, but NO content. Are hubpages not iPad friendly? Right now my computer is down and all I have to use for my hubs is my iPad...

Does anyone have an Instagram for there Iphone, Ipad, or Ipod? Whats your screen name?Instagram is a community of photographers that share their pictures with one another. Great way for getting your work out there and meeting people with the same interest.

What are some good grandmother/grandfather names?We're trying to come up with some names for my parents, since they're about to be grandparents for the first time. Any ideas? (They don't want to sound old, because they're not even 40 yet, so be creative, but not silly please.)

Is an iPad better than an IPod Touch for kids?My wife and I have been debating if an iPad is better than an Itouch for kids because the iPad is better for reading, watching video, and is less portable (less likely the kid takes it everywhere).

Do your grandchildren call you "Grandma," and "Grandpa" or something else?
