Microsoft drives Mrs. Daisy with ‘senior PC’

Downtime wonders why the little old lady who lives next door orders so many bottles of milk if she cannot be bothered to collect them each morning. They are really beginning to pile up. One company that has also had its eye on the elderly is Microsoft.

The BBC reports that Microsoft UK is developing a “senior PC”, which will have a simple interface and will be aimed at older users. The PC will come with software that allows users to manage prescriptions as well as simplified tools for everyday use, such as managing photos. Let’s hope the little old lady can generate a report to the milkman using an SQL back-end to cancel her deliveries.
