    The New York Times reports that iPad is helping people like 7-year-old Owen Cain, who has a debilitating motor-neuron disease, to communicate with friends, parents, and caregivers. That’s thanks in part to the iPad’s built-in accessibility features, as well as its intuitive Multi-Touch interface.
