Re: Not surprising
You're right! I guess it doesn't really matter the age of the person as long as they're willing to move along with technology and keep up!

Re: Not surprising
Happy Monday to all!!! It has been quite a Monday already.    One thing that I view at the heart of transformation is this: As we age, we have to be willing and able to change--this is why the tools being developed must be user friendly and simple.     That's at the heart of it all....

Re: Not surprising
Yeah it seems to me that the older generation is getting left behind a lot in the terms of the new technology that comes out every month. I don't know if it's possible for them to keep up.

Re: Not surprising
Let's trust all remember it and realize it--I wonder if that, in fact, can be possible especially as the World is aging.

Re: Not surprising
Very true! All generations should be considered. It's important to grasps the younger generations interest, yet still be able to hold an older generations attention and motivation to try a new way/device.

Re: Smartphones double usage
I get questioned about this all the time at home.  My husband tells me to turn the TV off if I'm not "watching" it.  I said "who sits down and just watches TV anymore?"  I've come to treat the TV as another occupant of the house: Present, doing it's own thing, and every now and again I will give my full attention to it in between doing other things.

Re: Not surprising
What you noted--as we bid farewell to March and Q1 2017 this week here at TT and beyond--reminded me of what General MacArthur Reminded us all..I note this because we should never quit and always be open--I view it as an implicit mission of TT that I am so grateful to have been able to contribute to!! :) :P)

Re: Not surprising
@mpouraryan - That's a fair point, technology helps people feel like they are connected to the younger crowd who are, for the most part, all connected. Maybe that's why my Mom has always been a part of technology (she actually is in charge of technology at the school she teaches at) Maybe it makes her feel younger. Maybe that's why I try to stay on top of things..... The can of worms this thought opens up....

Re: Smartphones double usage
@JohnBarnes - That is hilarious and I've never heard it before! But it's so true. Though it drives my husband nuts that I can't just leave the notifications be. Especially now that phones come with a light that flashes when you have any kind of notification. If the light on my phone is blue, I have to check to see what needs attending to. It's like having a 4th child.

Re: Not surprising
The device payments also, at some stage, needs to be thought through as well.     I wonder when what Reliance has done in india will arrive in America--now that will be a game changer--right?
