I got my dad an iPod for Christmas. After taking it out of the package several weeks later, he called me and asked how to activate it, and how much it is a month for service.
- I set up a Yahoo! e-mail account with my mom. She tried to access it by going to yahoo, typing her e-mail address in the search field and hitting enter.
- Mark B.
- My mom opened up Microsoft Word and typed "the internet" on the document and hit enter, fully expecting it to connect her to the Internet.
-Mark B. again, whose mom is apparently really stupid
- We set my grandmother up with the Internet so that she could e-mail out of town relatives. She called my dad in a panic one day and said she didn’t know what to do, the cops were probably on the way. He said, "Mom, what did you do?" She said, "I was on the online and a screen popped up that said I performed and illegal operation."
- My mom once called me up and asked me how to turn off the screensaver.
