Sir Elton John’s baby son has finally pushed him into the 21st Century – the technophobic superstar has bought his first iPad so he can see the tot on a webcam when he’s touring.
The singer is famously old fashioned when it comes to technology, admitting he doesn’t own a cell phone and only ever uses computers to read the news in his office. But following the birth of little Zachary via surrogate in December (10), the singer has been forced to embrace modern devices so he can stay in contact with his family when he’s on the road. His partner David Furnish says,
“It’s moved Elton into the computer age. For someone who steadfastly refused to get online, embrace the computer, embrace the internet, Elton took delivery of his first iPad two weeks ago because it has the dual camera on it and he wants to be able to (use online phone service) Skype (to call) his little son every day when he’s not with him.”
