My mother (who is of the late baby boomer era), had a little slider phone for three years. It stopped working last week, so she uses her long overdue upgrade. She decided (with my help) on an iPhone 5. Mainly because I knew getting her to use android would take a month and a half. A week after she gets the phone, I asked her how she was handling it. "I like it, but that siri's a bitch. She always acts like she can't understand me." I asked her how she was using it. She turns the phone over and holds the camera by her mouth and says, "google chicken recipes."- James

After finally caving in from my mom's nagging to help her scan some pictures while home over the holidays, I ask her to start her computer and enter her account on Windows.
