The recent article on my iPhone app in the PD elicited the following email from my father in law. I thought it was terrifically insightful, and wanted to share.
Dear Josh and Candace,
Umm, I would like to inform you guys that you don’t have to be a Gen X’er, Gen Y’er, or Gen Z’er to do ultra-cool i-things. Not a month ago i used my i-handy leveling tool to check the construction of my sister’s new hot-tub deck.
Then, and this was just last week, I was enjoying a frosty cold Red Bull at the studio and right then and there I developed an i-phone application by using the back of my i-phone as an i-coaster to protect the i-finish on my i-table.
And, at the risk of stealing your thunder here, I may in fact be the original inventor of the i-paperweight, an invaluable tool when out of i-doors on an i-windy day.
There’s just no telling what i-thing i’ll develop next. With an i-phone firmly in a baby-boomers i-holster, the i-world is the limit.
In other news, the over 50 crowd is the fastest growing demographic segment on Facebook. Clearly, at least some of them have managed to keep their powder dry over the years and have more than a few shots left in their pistol. :-p
