Do you find yourself wanting to use social media to stay in touch with loved ones but get lost in all the potential problems? Do you feel confident you understand all the ways to protect yourself from online scams? Have you been victimized or targeted because of your age demographic?
Do you find yourself avoiding using technology because either your vision isn’t perfect or your eyes are fatigued at the end of the day? Do you think you’d be more likely to benefit from apps like FaceTime, Skype and text messages if you could see their buttons in a larger and/or clearer display?
Do you make New Year’s resolutions? Are they always the same? Are you looking to improve your knowledge of technology and its many uses? Why not update your old, same resolutions with tech-inspiration?
Do you avoid online shopping to avoid identity theft? Do you feel safer shopping at traditional brick-and-mortar stores than you do online?
Congratulations! You’re officially retired. Just like with other areas of your life in this new phase, you’ll experience a palpable shift in digital assets. Did you have to give back a mobile phone? Hand over your laptop?
Do you ever feel embarrassed about buying personal hygiene products, like bladder control, sexual health or even denture products?
Have you said no to having a pet despite really wanting one? Or do you turn down invitations to fun events to avoid leaving your furry friend alone at home too long?
