You're never too old

I was just watching a video on Deutsche Welle that was about a 105 year old Swedish woman who got her first computer at age 99 and is now blogging online.

You’re never too old to learn something new. :slightly_smiling_face:

If you don’t burn out too fast
You can make the most of the distance

First you gotta last”

It’s hard for some to use the technology.

I’m so glad my 75 year old Auntie has a smart phone now and is getting online on facebook. You never say never!

My parents are both over 70 and smart people but doing tech support for them is like pulling teeth. We get there eventually but it’s such a drama for me…who grew up with computers…It’s all so strange for them I’m sure!

I just had this problem with my 61 year old dad today where he said he needed my help to get into an app to watch TV shows on his Xbox One. So I showed him how to do it. My 85 year old grandpa just finally started texting me a month or two ago and he used to work in electronics in Northern California.


@anon21849028…I’ve learned to cultivate patience without saying the obvious! It isn’t so obvious to them and it does my head in hahah.

It’s like the whole retro phenom for people 30 and over. We seem to stop learning new ideas after that period. It’s sad. But that’s only the general rule. A lot of us keep trying to learn new things.

It is surprizing more of them are not like this.

Some of the older crowd do get really bored since they cant go out much.

And if you have not spent time around older people then they like to tinker around with things.

It always seemed to me when it comes to computers, they would have been first in line.

And strange that it did not turn out that way.

Good for her!

I’m 58 sick and tired and can’t keep up with the latest thing and don’t even want to don’t suppose you’d understand. you can’t see it neither could i till i got there.

Interesting news - computers keep us young. Sadly, however, programming job is mainly offered to the young people aged before 30.
