    No. My dad can use a computer but I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know what he’s doing and my mom has never been online. My mom has a cell phone but really only uses it for long distance calls on the weekends and my dad doesn’t have one.

    yes I guess my mom is…she can type awesome and super fast only using 2 fingers!

    My mom is a computer user, but she’s not “tech savvy”. She’s ok with surfing the net, with the spreadsheet programs that my brothers (I think) set up for her checkbook and insurance, and she’s good with Word. But she’s a “user”, meaning that if there’s a problem, she calls for help, rather than messing around and trying to fix it.

    My dad hates even being in the same ROOM as a computer. He’s happy to let the rest of us use them. He does use the cellphone that he and mom share, though.

    Not like they would send their resumes to Microsoft, but they get by. My mom was big with eBay for a while, so she was on a lot for that. Plus she used her computer to catalog her huge collection of VHS tapes – for all the good that’s going to do someone someday. She used the computer for some aspects of running her small business. She plays computer solitaire gaimes a lot, LOL. My dad goes on the internet to find stuff out, to shop for obscure stuff for his hobbies, etc. He recently retired from a job that involved getting computerized machines to talk to each other and troubleshooting all kinds of problems relating to computerized machine controls. I don’t really know the full extent of his tech savvy-ness, but I’d say he is certainly computer literate.

  5. My mom is slowly learning to be tech-savvy. She can do lots of things online, and she deals okay with machinery in general, but there are still lots of little things that are intuitive to me as a computer user and that she’s constantly surprised at.

    Lol! No way! Technology scares them!

    Not really. My moms know how to turn her laptop on and surf the net but that’s about it. She JUST learned how to program numbers into her cell phone! She texts now, which is funny!!!
