How can someone communicate via the internet without using WebTV or a computer?

Question

My mother-in-law received a Microsoft "Internet Companion", primarily for emailing relatives.

She has had it for 2 yrs but Microsoft has not ceased to "service" her Internet Companion. She now has a WebTV which is causing her tremendous problems (she's 85 mind you). Is there a simpler way for her to communicate via the Internet?
