  • Seniors Staying Connected Through Technology

    You might not consider this a lot, but there are some people, even news corporations, who say iPads and the advancement of technology can be a great benefit to senior citizens. Getting over the obvious factor that it might be difficult to use at first, once you get over that hurdle, there are many great and useful things seniors can do with an iPad. US News discusses more in their article How The iPad Can Be A Savior To Seniors:

    I wasn't the first kid on my block to have an iPad. I was the oldest kid. And it's not been easy. I've had to struggle with admiring onlookers who profess jealousy that I have such a neat toy. And at times, it has been hard to find more than five or six hours of enjoyable daily activities to do on my iPad. But I've persevered and while I've just scratched the surface, it is clear that the iPad can be an invaluable tool for older users. As the first mass-market tablet computer, it will be followed in short order by competing tablets from many providers, mostly in the PC (as opposed to Apple) world. This will lower prices and increase features.

    I do not own Apple stock and am not recommending the company. I am recommending its approach to providing easy access to online information. And I'm recommending that older consumers take a serious look at this tool. You may think the computer age has passed you by but the iPad makes a strong case that what's passed you by is the high-tech "members only" phase of that age.

    What the iPad has done, better than other computing devices, is make the technology invisible. You don't need to repair a car in order to drive it, and you shouldn't need to be a computer jockey in order to turn one on and use it. But it's pretty much been a rite of passage that you needed to understand hard drive storage sizes, the brawn of your central processor, and the speed of your Internet connections. Not so with the iPad. You turn it on and it works. There is no boot-up time lag. It's ready to go as soon as you turn it on. If you have an intuitive sense of how something should be done on an iPad, there's a good chance that's exactly how you do it. As with the smaller iPhone, you don't type in commands but use your fingers on a touch-sensitive screen. No keyboard. No mouse.
