“There are three kinds of seniors … those who know IT and enjoy every minute of it. Those who understand what IT are about but do not know the good and bad about IT and the Internet. I call this group as “driving blindly through the Internet” and many have got their fingers burnt. This is the second kind. The third kind of seniors is those who heard about the usefulness of IT and the smart devices (smartphones, tablets), never use the Internet and do not know how or where to start.”
I propose now with my limited resource and budget, to start, in a small way, and make a difference to the third kind of seniors. For those first and second kinds of seniors, if you have any friend interested and willing to take the challenge, do let them know.
The details …
