Mater 85, sisters 62 & 64 plus various elderly neighbors.

Three is definitely age age divide with this. The attitude past 60ish, is I'm all for it and not frightened at all as some of our senior members are placed, or Ohhhhhh.... I don't know about this.... Noooooo it's not for me at all... no, no, nooooo.

It seems to me that older women have a problem with trying new (to them) things such as the internet.

My parents in their Eighties refuse to have a computer in the house.

The problems we had with the digital switch over and a new flat screen TV my mother still only watches the 5 "terrestrial" channels :0)

My wife also will get me or the children to go on the internet for her and only then for the ASDA price check.

Oh well little steps - once I've got the Humax connected to the network I'll introduce her to catch up TV :0)

My 83-year old Mum, who always comments when she visits us and I'm using the PC "Are you playing with that toy, again?".

My 80 yr old neighbour, not averse to learning new things, does not use the old laptop I gave her because "I haven't got the time" !!! I got it to work off my wireless router, showed her which buttons to press, but no, haven't got time, I'll try it later on. I give up.
