While sitting here waiting for the election results to come in I wondered over the the AV Club. With the AV Club as with some other sites, you get lots of comments on short little articles that seem as if they were posted for conversation.

One of which is one about how half the people with DVR can't find the FF button to advance through commercials. Not the most interesting topic and nor where the comments because everyone was just describing there experiences with DVR with plenty of vulgarity... That is till I came across this one by kjohnson1585:

"Man, remember back then when you were teaching your grandma how to program a VCR? You might as well teach her how to build a computer from scratch. It ain't happening."

Now, I'm not saying that all grandma's can learn this. Heck, I have a hard time with things. I found myself today thinking... Hey, maybe I'll get the new fancy pants phone when it comes out... wait, can I, or more importantly, do I want to figure it out?

The kicker in the article (from the NY Times) is that it was people between the ages of 18-49 that couldn't find the button.

Yeah, the new phone... it ain't happening.

Maybe I should get it for my nana.
