Seniors work to close tech gap - - Nov. 27, 2011:

"Despite the increasing hype and widespread acceptance of technology, Americans over 65 are not leaping forward into the new digital age at the same rate as their younger counterparts. There’s a digital divide that’s leaving the silver-haired set on the sidelines.

A recent study from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project found 42 percent of those over 65 go online, and only 30 percent of the 75-and-older group do.

Gary Moulton, a Microsoft project manager who focuses on how technology products are used by older adults, cites another study from Forrester Research that finds Americans over 50 show a clear drop-off in their interest in and adoption of technology. "
