There's something undeniably pure about older people using technology...and failing. It's a time honored tradition that will undoubtedly fall on the young folk to continue. Even people who grew up with technology struggle to keep up with today's stuff. So you may think you're immune to the phenomenon, but you're likely on pace to be just like this Grandma.
Yes, it is a bit demeaning to laugh at them as they struggle to figure out how to properly use their cameras and cell phones and computers. Like this one guy's grandma who uses "please" and "thank you" when asking Google to search something for her. But hey, as grandchildren it's almost our right to laugh at the struggles considering it's us who are coming over to "fix" the remote for the 10th time this month even though it's just on the wrong input setting.
Every now and then a token grandma or grandpa will pop up on Twitter to steal everyone's hearts as they try to navigate the wacky world of modern consumer tech. We just can't help but love them for it too. It's almost like watching puppies try to stand for the first time, you feel bad for their struggle but it's just oh-so cute.
And Twitter user @camcamgarner's grandmother is the latest adorable elder who accidentally documented her tech failings.
People weren't just smitten with her video, but the nice young man who assisted her.
Others preferred her self-recording over whatever it was she was trying to capture on camera.
While others thought that the kind, helping stranger inadvertently blew up her spot.
In any event, when older generations and technology collide, magic can happen.
Like this grandma using her own zoom feature on an iPhone. Just wonderful.
