How to Solve Tech Problems for Old People Once and for All

How to Solve Tech Problems for Old People Once and for All

by Brenden Gallagher | CULTURE |

So your parents can stop asking you how to get these damn machines to work.

Give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime. Show a man an easier way to fish and they’ll stop bothering you about fishing every time you just try to call and check in.

At least that’s how it works with parents and technology. If you are home for the holidays, and you have a spare day between getting drunk with your friends from high school and watching your uncle get drunk and talk about how he played football in high school (better that than why he voted for Trump), do yourself a favor. Help your parents with their tech problems while you are there, face-to-face, instead of waiting until that inconvenient phone call about how their phone is being inconvenient. Here are some easy tech solutions that you get into over the holidays and save yourself a ton of future headaches.
