My grandma is pretty good at the Internet! She has Facebook and hotmail and it only took her 2 years! Just be patient she will get it soon! You just need to keep repeating it. About being abusive: take it like a man!

Both of my parents are in their 60's and each own a computer and are very savvy on them. My mom taught for the longest time. So saying the interwebs doesn't appeal to older generations is a blatant stereotype.

My friend's grandma has an iPhone and iPad and she doesn't even know how to use them. She just likes looking cool. And autocorrect fixed iPad and iPod. How conceited.
