Why is it that people of a certain age find it hard to embrace new technology in their daily lives?
Although I have mastered sending and receiving emails, I still pine for my IBM selectric typewriter.
Why would I do that?
I think it has to do with perhaps nostalgia in one sense. Maybe the time when you first used your IBM still brings back happy memories? In addition, perhaps you felt that your IBM in some ways was more reliable and for you more fun than some of the present technology. I think as well, as we get older, rather than not embracing new technology, many of us genuinely feel we don't need it to live our lives the way we want to.
People get set in their ways and get comfortable with the familiar things. They may see those things as "new" and "unfamiliar" and therefore they shy away from it, which is not necessarily bad, because it is just new and they must get use to it.
I think its because technology changes and advances so quickly that it becomes a chore to learn them and keep up with it if you don't have the knack for technology or if you are not working in the industry.

Do you know if you have to be a certain age (ie. 18+) to publish a novel in the UK?I'm writing a novel at the moment and my ultimate goal, as is for every aspiring novelist, is to get it published, but the only thing is I'm not 18 yet. Would that matter?
