Speaking as a rather late newcomer to the whole "Cyber World", I'll just say that without the basic understanding of computers and how they work, we are ignorant. I was given a computer in my 59th year by my children who insisted I should have one is these times. <br />
<br />
Once the laptop was handed to me, the intolerance and irritability started when I would ask questions. So, the heck with them I said, and for the most part am self-taught. Many, many others in my age group have had this same experience. <br />
<br />
For us it's a double sword, I make mistakes and get myself in trouble on the computer and am lectured about my ignorance with computers; however, if I ask for help I've found this younger generation completely intolerant and not willing to spend any time helping.<br />
<br />
I'll be taking a computer course at the Adult School this Spring. I hope the Instructors are more tolerant than my family.

Those of us who didn't grow up with Windows have a tough time figuring any of this stuff out and the people who know it and understand it (at least the ones I know) have no patience for sharing their knowledge. They say thing like "click on the poiuasf;jk" and then expect you to be able to find it, but quite frankly icons don't mean a thing to my brain. They are indecipherable and the person trying to help me then loses patience and jumps in and just does whatever I needed to have done rather than teaching me. You say just look it up online -- well guess what? You need to know computer in order to be able to do that.

Just think of all the jobs that would be lost if everyone was computer/internet savvy. There is a huge amount of dollars/jobs in tech support. Why? Because a lot of people are willing pay for their ignorance in computers/internet while they remain focused on other things.
