At 102, She's Addicted To Email

from the never-too-old-to-start dept

While senior citizens have been less likely to check out the internet, some of those who do are embracing it with quite a bit of excitement. The San Jose Mercury news is running a profile of a 102-year-old woman who uses email all the time, and evangelizes the wonders of email to others at the assisted living home where she resides. She says she ends up checking her emails at least six times a day, and it’s a great way for her to stay in touch with friends and relatives.
