Fiona Bligh never thought she would get a response when she sent an email to Apple CEO Steve Jobs. But, the story of her daughter Holly's unique experience with her iPad inspired Steve so much that not only did he write back to Fiona, but Steve asked if he could share her story as well.
Fiona's daughter has albinism. It affects pigment in her skin, hair color and also her vision. The Australian Herald Sun wrote about nine-year-old Holly, noting that her iPad has replaced the large magnifying glass she needed to read. She can quickly enlarge text and is now much more enthusiastic about reading, and can read for twice as long without getting tired.
In her email to the Apple CEO, Fiona shared that "all the other kids think it's awesome that she gets an iPad!" Steve wrote back:
Thanks for sharing your experience with me. Do you mind if I read your email to a group of our top 100 leaders at Apple?
He signed the email "Thanks, Steve".

Also interesting to see a Steve response longer than 3 words ;) I have a story too, Steve. Steve?
"Tablets are still toys, you can't do anything serious."
"Apple's iPad is too simple. Not enough buttons and flashing lights."
And yet it still manages to change lives. Amazing.
Also, in the end, for those whom need screen readers or programs that zoom to make everything bigger, Macs end up being cheaper than many equivalent PC options and work better, from my experience.
That's how you know this is a complete fake! :p
