When walking into the Apple store at Keystone, you would think to find more people in their early twenties to forties. This was not the case, I began noticing older adults buying mini IPads, IPads, Mac computers, etc. Seeing this surprised me, because we hear about the digital era we are in, but I know when it comes to my father using his IPad, he only uses it for Facebook (Sadly) and Flipboard. Although, this makes me wonder, are older adults starting to get better at technology, than the younger generation?
From the Article Online habits Coming Slowly to Older Adults, explains how older adults are all coming to the digital era. In addition, it goes into explaining, the more money someone has (older adults) the more technologies they will buy to fit into society. I believe this to be true, because my ninety-three year old grandma has an IPad, and she uses a variety of apps and takes it with her everywhere. This question is for you: Do you believe that technology is being used by older adults, if so, how can you tell?
