With Granny’s birthday coming up in July, we’ve been trying to find something creative to give her to celebrate the occasion. She’s a widow on a fixed income and isn’t as mobile as she’d like to be. While she’s content with phone calls and picture mail, I’m all too aware of the technology that exists and how much more connected and apart of our lives she could be if she only had the right tools.
In discussing possible gadgets to bring Granny into this century, we had a few things to keep in mind. Anything with teeny tiny print that she couldn’t possibly read comfortably like an iPhone was out. Anything that had too many bells and whistles (ie: anything that was overkill and go unused) was out. And anything that cost too much was out – one, for our budget but also because if she got overwhelmed and decided she couldn’t use the device, then we wouldn’t be out too much.
