The future of technology and MP3 players

Sony MP3 Player

I want you to think about your parents or grandparents for a minute, and think about all the times they ask you for help with today’s current technology. I bet more times than not, they turn to you nearly several times a week for simple questions about their phones, computers, GPS, Internet, MP3 players, etc. If you think about it, technology discriminates against older people, as it benefits the young people as they are able to pick up new technology easily. Of course, there are classes such as computer classes that help teach the computer to older people, but those don’t always work. My question is, why not make a simple computer for anyone, especially older people, to understand?

Recently, Sony showed off a new type of MP3 player that specifically targeted the older generations, so they don’t have to always call when the pause button is pressed by accident and they can’t figure out what to do.
