Fast forward to 2008 when we have a 71-year old senator running for president of the United States. On July 14, the Telegraph from Great Britain published a story about how Sen. John McCain is computer illiterate. In the story, they claim that he doesn't surf the Internet or send e-mail. ow, granted I am nearly 50 years younger than him and work in the technology industry. But there is no way that I am okay with the leader of the free world being incapable of Googling himself. Or sending an important Oval memo. I mean, REALLY? In response to this report, the Associated Press wrote an article on the web usage trends of American seniors.
