@32 People who do things with no regard to consequences are likely to possess poor leadership skills. A rational person would ask what the red X does before pressing it. Hell, a rational person might just infer that the button does something that warrants caution, because it is a red X.

#46 and #40 Not that I do not agree, but I worked under a man who could barely write an email, he was in his late 50s, but we had the best stock and inventory crew in our tri-sector. Computing skills are important but she could be an older woman, she can be a leader and make flaws.

@49 I'm not talking (typing) about a lack of computer skills. I'm talking about a personality trait.

#53 He couldn't open his email correctly without me there. I wasn't referring to typing but I see your point.

Don't show her where her email's trash is; she may delete them from there too. (Then how would you restore them?) :)

What does that have to do with anything? You could ask endless questions. Does she know how to change a password, print in landscape, tie her shoe?

...Or it could be related to the fact that what deletes a page on the Internet is also a little red X.

(whoops, hit send a bit early! Chalk it up to my 'old age', I was born in '79) But older generations only learned how to use computers in adulthood... Surely the kid who's been using an ipad since he was 3 will have a better grasp of technology.

Seedless, I did not even see a computer till I was 15. Guess what I do for a living? Program computers. It's not age, it's laziness.

52 needs to be thumbed way up, since anyone with a brain and a bit of spare time can learn the basics of computer function. The lack of both motivation and understanding both usually stem from a psuedo laziness that comes with the presumption that something is to difficult to understand, or will take too long to learn.
