Came across this in a SkyMall catalog:

  "Telikin is a simple and easy to use family
  computer that combines video chat, photo sharing,
  email and many more popular features into a sleek,
  touchscreen device."

  http://www.telikin.com/

Anyone tried one, or set one up for a family member?
One of the selling points is "Tech Buddy" remote
access.  The AARP web site says,

  "Keep the fun part of personal computing — the
  Web browsing, e-mail, calendar, photo sharing,
  games and video chat — and lose the complexity
  and virus risk."

The video chat feature looks nifty, but can't see
from the web site if it's a rebranded version of one
of the Free ones, or interoperable.
