A microchip’s transistor count doubles every two years according to Moore’s Law, resulting in faster computers and exponential technological advancement. These findings might explain why older adults have trouble keeping up with the quickly evolving digital world.
When it comes to computers and smartphones, our elders are still in their infancy. When they absolutely and utterly fail to use today’s technologies, it’s funny. Tech blunders are not the only things to blame; some are even the result of being out of touch with the present. When explaining to granny that uh… “thing” she has isn’t really what it appears to be, so how can you do so in a respectful manner?
Our intent isn’t to criticize them; it’s just amusing (and sweet) to see those we deem wiser than us are proving us wrong. We’ve gathered the most recent instances, but you can also check out our other collections here and here. It’s easy to vote for your favorites, and you can even teach your elders how to do it.

#11 As soon as my mother set up a Facebook account, she sent me the following message:
#12 Because my grandmother mistook this for a cross, she hung it on the wall. I opted not to correct her because I didn’t want to upset her.
#13 My grandmother is aware that I am an Uber driver, but she has no idea how it operates. There was a note on it that read: “Thought this might be good for your Uber appts”
#14 My wife’s grandfather has unsubscribed from Facebook.
