Even though heaps of mature age people are as net savvy as any young wippersnapper, there are still many who haven’t been caught up in the net – so to speak.
I happened upon this funny and helpful site today. It struck me that there are many people out there that don’t have tech savvy, skyping, IMing, texting parents like mine. This time of year is when we want to connect with our family & friends and whatever your opinions about the form or context, sometimes it really can just be “the thought that counts”.
That might seem like I’m making excuses for laziness or maybe a little bah humbug or at least not very warm and fuzzy… but to me it’s just the reality of many people I know. Not everyone CAN make it home for the holidays and, as I know here in Australia, the international shipping usually costs more than the gift!
If an email, e-gift or skype is what it takes for us to connect… then we should be glad that we can do that in 2010.
But what if your family are luddites??
Then send your parents a Tech Support Care Package! “This site was built by a few folks at Google to help keep tech support a family business.”
DRV Lifestyle™ is kinda like fwding or rwding to the good parts of life, with age being no limitation. Why should some people miss out because they don’t know a few simple things and are probably too intimidated to ask -or you’re too frustrated to show them…?
EVERYONE deserves to endure those horrendous Elf e-cards!!
