Telikin For some, the digital divide simply needs a translator

Category: General

Baby-at-laptop-2For some, the digital divide simply needs a translator -- Speaking English comes very natural to most of us. But let us face it; we have had many years of practice in learning how to get our points across. Ordering coffee on our way to work, relaying messages to our co-workers or debating today’s current events with our friends are all fairly simple tasks.

Telikin Pew Research study indicates many seniors are still reluctant to go digital

Category: General

Senior Woman Smiling TelikinPew Research study indicates many seniors are still reluctant to go digital - A recent Pew Research Internet study: Older Adults and Technology Use published findings last April that should come as no surprise: Those aged 65 and over, on average, lag the rest of the U.S. population in adopting new technologies into their daily lives.

Even though U.S. seniors who access the internet — now 60% — grew by six percentage points over last year ‘s statistics, according to the study, the wiser among us still trail the 86% of all adults who state that they engage in online activity.

Here at Telikin, we are aware of the challenges the senior community faces when deciding whether or not to step foot into the digital world. And regardless if you or a loved one have a physical ailment that limits your use of a traditional computer or you simply are intimidated by the learning curve that must be overcome in order to learn how use and enjoy a computer, you can rest assured that we have gone to great lengths to design a computer with you in mind.

gift connectGive the Gift of Connections -- "Reach out and touch someone."  "These are the moments of your life." 

How many of you remember these famous advertising slogans from the 1970's?  I can still remember those commercials. Human connection – it’s an emotion and a need that is hardwired into our psyche.  Most of us strive for meaningful relationships with family and friends throughout our lives. And social connection is important not only for our personal happiness, but also for our overall health and wellbeing.
