The Challenges of Boomers With Advancing Technology

Many baby boomers have grown up. I met a few baby boomers and made some observations. Interest in computers ranges from an avid blogger on Facebook to a dangerous technophobe. I’m not sure why technophobic baby boomers have their concerns, but I suspect it could be a fear of change or a mistake that would turn into costly disasters for post-Depression parents who feel the need for them. thrifty to make things strong and durable. don’t waste your money. The fact that computer technology is very expensive and outdated works very quickly against this attitude, and many baby boomers, especially the elderly, oppose such spending.

The introduction of technology for those concerned for any reason is delayed, and the longer the delay, the more difficult it is.

This becomes an obsession for enthusiasts. This group has the latest techno toys on the market because they belong to the demographic group that has enough money or credits to buy them.
