I'm planning on giving my mother a 3G iPad as she doesn't have internet access and this would give her a link to the outside world. I'm going to set it up on my PC but I suppose that I should also see if I can sync it to iCloud for backup. I had a chat with a brother-in-law and his comment was that he's been unsuccessful with trying to set up older people (60+) with technology systems that they will use.
I'm an hour away and my brother-in-law is about 20 minutes away so we can help out from time to time when we visit.
