My friend found an ad for the GO computer for seniors. The senior in question currently has a windows based computer which he uses to play solitare. He doesn't use email as it's too complicated for him. He can't remember all the steps and thus doesn't use it.
Here's a clip from their ad. Has anyone heard of this or used it?
" But wait until you start to use it...Itís easy to see and use with specially designed features like a large-letter keyboard, an easy-rolling trackball mouse and a zoom feature that magnifies up to 200 percent. firstSTREETís computer features a whole new operating system based on a "GO" screen concept, backed up by immediate phone access to around-the-clock U. S.-based remote service and assistance.
Finally...a computer you canít break, crash or confuse; a computer that wonít lose whatís put into it, and thatís protected from viruses and spam!
Welcome to the world of a failure-free and fear-free computer! "
