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.

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.
