How can we make technology more friendly to people in their old age?

I have noticed that it is easy to relate with technology especially if you were born in the Internet or Computer age. But those who were born long before the age started struggle to use it to improve their lives. I think we need to come up with technological designs that take older people into consideration in order for them to reap the full benefit. But my question is, in what ways can this be achieved.

  • Aug 20 2011: Few steps to learn and should be intuitive. Old people are not the only ones who struggle with technology. There are quite a few younsters who do not relate well hence have difficulty. There are youngsters in India who cannot drive a car!!!
