This AP story reports a Pittsburgh conference addressing how elderly folks can learn to use computers. 

The...conference is a look into the region's latest innovationsinvolving technology and aging. From virtual communities on the Web toremote medication monitoring, technology is something that can be usedto empower the elderly, said Judith Tabolt Matthews, one of theorganizer's of Friday's meeting...

"Older adults are very accepting of technology," Matthews said, "as long as it is intuitive to use and reliable."
